Melky's still young

Melky has taken a lot of criticism so far this year due to his poor hitting (.118/.211/.118). Not only is the sample size too small (20 pa), but y'all have to remember, he's still very young - in fact, he's the third youngest player in the whole AL (behind Delmon Young and B.J. Upton - scroll to the bottom to see their ages). Matsui going down is unfortunate for the present success of the team, but giving Melky more playing time will benefit the long-term success of the Yankees.
