I was wondering why Ross Youngs hadn't shown up more often before I saw this list (and JR's really long list out of a phone book or something). I went back yesterday to look up Youngs again before I had to run, and in that brief time I really didn't see anything that said he was better than Garvey. Just curious why he has been left off all the other lists? What am I missing with Youngs?
