I only got 50%. I guess I should start cracking the books on Youngs Delwyn and Otherwise.

Good man. Boy did he pound that one. I was in awe the entire game of Strasburg’s ability.

Delwyn Young sounds like a fantasy novel character’s name. Delmon Young looks like something that gets slain in a fantasy novel.

Question 8 is faulty. Both Youngs made their ML debuts in 2006, not 2008.

I am a little disappointed in myself for getting all but #2. I put Delmon for that.

90% is frightening. I should not know that much as a Cubs fan.

I got 90%. Is being really knowledgeable on the Youngs a good thing or bad thing? For some reason I feel like by winning I might have failed.
