Jamey Newberg of The Athletic asked Michael Young to name the ten greatest players he ever played against.
10. Roberto Alomar—the guy could do it all.
9. Albert Pujols—best hitter in baseball for a decade.
8. Ichiro—Young had a higher OPS, in fact.
7. Chipper Jones—too bad he was in the NL.
6. Derek Jeter—Why did he have to be a Yankee?
5. Vladimir Guerrero—One-man Rangers wrecking crew.
4. Alex Rodriguez—Syringe and all.
3. Miguel Cabrera—The man could hit.
2. Mike Trout—Might end up being best ever.
1. Barry Bonds—What a shame.
