Delmon Young could play quarterback

Tampa Bay Devil Rays prospect and huge fucking G, Delmon Young, pulled off a move of Carl Everett proportions yesterday.

If you recall, Everett was involved in what was our favorite ejection scene in MLB history. After a called third strike, Everett drew a line in the batter’s box indicating where he thought the ball crossed the plate. The ump wasted no time in tossing him from the game.

Well, Carl, you got one-upped (and for the record, the fact that you don’t believe in dinosaurs is unbelievably awesome, but highly suspect).

After a called third strike in yesterday’s game between Young’s Durham Bulls and Pawtucket, the younger brother of Dmitri argued the call with the umpire.

Young was promptly ejected, causing him to chuck his bat — his bat! — at the ump behind the plate. Yeah, he threw his fucking bat and hit the ump square in the chest.

We just can’t get over how incredibly savage this is and how much it increases Young’s G status.

Unfortunately, Green Bay solved its quarterback issue, but we think this top-overall pick could make a leap into Saturday’s NFL Draft.

(No word on a suspension yet, but we wouldn't be surprised to never hear from Young again).

In other news: Kobe Bryant will change his number next season from 8 to 24 because he really likes that show on Fox.
