If you followed the Tigers in 2012, you would have notice that Young got a lot of big hits, and he had more RBIs against the White Sox last season than against any other team. He was more productive against the White Sox last year than Hunter was, although Hunter has a reputation of being a White Sox killer. Maybe Hunter will hurt the White Sox more next year than he did last year. Maybe Hunter will hurt the White Sox more than Young did last year. Maybe Cabrera and Fielder won't hit as well in the clutch next year and things will even out. It doesn't change the fact that Young had a lot of big hits against the White Sox last year.
