Mariners have checked in on Delmon Young. As I reported last night he’s expected to work out for teams and sign in January.

And upon checking in they went “eww, it’s Delmon Young. Sorry. Our mistake.”

In all seriousness, I am curious as hell about what happens to Delmon Young.  He was pretty bad all season, then hit .312/.365/.542 with three homers and nine RBI in the playoffs, then he had ankle surgery last month.

That’s two major red flags and one shiny, superficial, small-sample performance. Will he still get paid for that, or will he get the one-year journeyman deal he probably deserves?
