Monday News:

Chris Young threw 5 1/3 innings of shutout baseball for the Lake Elsinore Storm on Saturday night and declared that he's ready to return to the Padres. With 20 games left in the regular season and San Diego tied for first place, the question becomes what Young's role could be. Starter? Long reliever? Held out until 2011 to avoid another setback?

If you're curious to watch Young's pregame bullpen session, I've posted it below.

Bob Scrabis, New Jersey Net?

In October 1989, five months after playing his final game in Jadwin Gym, former Princeton guard Bob Scrabis returned to the Tigers' home court as a member of the New Jersey Nets training camp - postponing a trip to England after receiving an invitation from Nets GM Willis Reed.

Asked about Scrabis and Yale's Paul Maley '88, who was also in the Nets' camp, New Jersey head coach Bill Fitch told the Trenton Times: "I think it's great that they're here. I know that Bob, playing for the guy with the cigars, what's his name? Pete something? I know I won't have to teach him any fundamentals. I know he'll have been the best coached guy out there. They have a chance. They can obviously play, otherwise they wouldn't be here."

Scrabis strained his hamstring on the second day of camp and was waived nine days later.
