So I hear Delmon Young got into some trouble recently

My best guess was Young was in his own world, probably inebriated - a panhandler was cloying around his space, unsavory, un-PC things get said when people are under the influence and things happen. When bystanders try to break things up, he gets in a bigger altercation that gets him arrested.

Maybe lost in the message is that Delmon can be the most laid back, chill guy under most circumstances - but he's no Josh Hamilton.

The media and fans will always assume the worst and short of what they really want to call him - Young's already had some history of immaturity, dating back when he threw a bat at an umpire in the minors, so anyone with Google will find all sorts of stuff said about him you wouldn't say to his face.

Even if Young has been a disappointment under most circumstances as a former No. 1 overall pick - he is still a professional baseball player with some stature, one who needs to get some help before he finds himself completely irrelevant.
