Chris Young said he believes the Mets could have one of the best outfield in baseball.
He pointed to the fact that the team has four guys who can all play center field in himself, Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares and Eric Young Jr. Chris Young told the team that he is most comfortable playing in center, but said he can also play other outfield positions if the team favors Eric Young or Lagares over him.
He also said that he is willing to bat leadoff if that’s where the team puts him in the lineup, but that he’s batted everywhere in the lineup and his place in the order doesn’t affect his approach at the plate.
Chris Young told the media that he’s waited his whole life to play in New York, citing the increased pressure that comes from a big market team. He said he knows that his failures will be magnified, but so will his accomplishments.
