Well…didn’t Joe Buck call Michael Young “arguably the best hitter in franchise history”. So there’s that.
The Rangers didn’t need Cliff Lee to get back to the World Series.
They did need Michael Young.
They weren’t severely damaged on that night in December, when Lee turned down their millions to sign with the Phillies. But they may well have been saved on those days in February, when they didn’t trade Young.
The Rangers without Lee are American League champions, just as they were with him. The Rangers without Young just wouldn’t be the same.
...“If we go into any game and you ask who’s going to get the big hit, I’m always going to say Michael Young,” said Tom Grieve, the one-time Rangers general manager and longtime television analyst. “You’d like to say, ‘Wow, what a surprise.’ But it’s not.”
