Delmon Young Mired in Carolina

Hopefully Tampa Bay prospect Delmon Young likes barbeque, sweet tea and potato pie because he's going to be in North Carolina for awhile yet. Though third baseman-outfielder Aubry Huff is out of action for up to six weeks, the team shows no indication that Young, who is batting .366 for AAA Durham, has been given even the slightest consideration as a replacement. The longer Tampa Bay holds the 21-year-old super prospect back, the longer the team benefits by putting off his salary arbitration date.
