On the idea of benching Michael Young:

"My thoughts are that when you have a player of this caliber who has done this much in his career, you don't even think about benching a guy like Michael Young. He is way too capable of busting out and putting a team on his back and being so productive from now until the end of the season that that's not even a thought that has crossed my mind.

"Like you said Mike is a team guy, he's been around a long time, he's a great clubhouse guy, he's done everything that this organization could ask for over a long period of years and he's a great baseball player.

"All of us hit our slumps now and then. He may have not had the type of season that he would want, but he's the type of guy that he's not going to dwell on the past. He's going to do whatever he can to help this team win from here going forward and we all have confidence in him."
