I thought after last season when the Arizona Diamondbacks fielded one of the youngest teams in Major League Baseball that we had finally seen an end to the youth movement. As is normally the case, I thought wrong. The team announced through a press release that they had signed on with yet another rookie. With as much fanfare as can be mustered in a press clipping the Diamondbacks announced an agreement with Chez Reavie. Wait, who did you say? Let me repeat, the Diamondbacks announced they had reached an agreement with rookie Chez Reavie. With that news I stopped reading the press release and immediately leapt to a browser window and surfed over to Baseball Reference since I had no idea who Chez Reavie was or what position he may be vying for.
