When (If EVER) Will The Orioles Get a Hitter Like This? in Orioles Talk Posted June 14, 2010 Sorry I will take Young any day. He's even had clutch winning hits in Allstar games, which BTW, if Markakis is so great how come he has appeared in ZERO All-star games so far? Just because he is the best hitter on the Orioles doesn't mean he's better than true all-star players who have not only played in multiple All-star games have had game winning hits. Get back to me whenever Markakis even shows up on the field in an All-star game much less does something noteworthy. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you!:laughlol: You only need to be great for 2- 3 months to be an All-Star. So you are way overrating the All-Star tag. And if you would take just 30 sec. and look at all the stats that have been provided to you, you would see that Markakis is head and shoulders better than Young.
