Yes it did and it is a definite win for the Phillies. I would have had no issue with Frandsen starting at 3rd, but he'll get his fair share of playing time since Young will certainly need days off. And even if Young puts up his lowly .277 again this year (he won't), it's still better than the other in-house option Freddy Galvis. Of course, Galvis is also much better defensively, but you can't complain about picking up Young for $6 million.
I'm looking for .290, 20 home runs (left field is shallow in Philly) and 70 RBIs. Most importantly he bats righty.
