that's bizarre to now have to force people to undo the spaces just to watch the video. HOWEVER folks it is worth watching to here Dmitri talk about his up and down career here in Detroit and how he's changed his life around and now back coach :-)

Sorry for the hassle, not sure why I just can't post the link normally.

Good for Dmitri. Hopefully, he stays sober and gets back in the Majors someday. He's starting near rock bottom, so there's nowhere to go but up.

My favorite DY moment is his 3 homers on opening day.
I played hooky from work to see that game on TV. ESPN carried it.

Glad to see him get it together. So many people go down his path and never recover.

Yeah, he came into the Dick's Sporting Goods that I work at probably about 2 weeks ago. He looked good, looked like he was in decent shape. And he was wearing a Kenny Powers, Eastbound and Down tshirt which is awesome! ha

Good for D'MeatHook!!! I'm gonna have to go check out a Oakland County Cruisers game this summer for sure! Too bad they haven't got their field built yet in Waterford.

Screw Dmitri Young with a red-hot poker.

He was instrumental in ruining Alan Trammell's managing career, and when he tried the same crap on Leyland just about exactly one year later, they terminated his contract literally within seconds.

I'm with TJ on this guy.He milked baseball,the Tigers & finally the Nationals for any buck he could get. He turned into a lazy,phony,disgusting person. The well & his talent have run dry in MLB so here he is looking for another sucker.In Detroit,no less.

Dmitri made a boatload of money. I would be shocked if he isn't set for life. He has diabetes which ended his career..

Not a model guy, but he seems to have learned from his mistakes. Deserves a second chance.

In other words, you are suggesting there is no chance he has matured or changed for the better.

Whenever I think of Dmitri I think about that story where he met Bowden at a diner and parked his big tripped out SUV in a handicapped spot.

Everyone knows nobody ever turns their life around after hitting rock-bottom, Mr. Bigglesworth!
