Slimmed down Dmitri Young looks to restart career

DALLAS -- It's been 41 months since Dmitri Young last played in the big leagues.

Forty-one months ago . . . and 70 pounds ago.

A so-slim-you-might-not-recognize-him
Young showed up at the winter meetings Monday, hopeful of restarting a big-league career that stalled in 2008 with the Nationals. Young, who turned 38 in October, said he's willing to go to Japan if no major-league team is willing to give him a chance.

"I feel I've still got something left in the tank," he said.

Young said he now weighs 230 pounds (and he looks it).

He showed up at the winter meetings along with ex-Tigers teammate Robert Fick, who now works for the agency that represents Young.

I hear the Marlins are looking for old players and are willing to overpay to get them. He needs to get his butt to Mia.

He does look great and at 38 I'm sure someone will invite him to camp.  This guy also has one of the sickest baseball card collections in the world - google it!
