Michael Young and the Big Trade

As everyone who was watching news after recovering from Super Bowl-related alcohol poisoning knows, Michael Young has demanded a trade out of Texas.  Both his contract ($16 million a year) and his limited destinations (only 8 teams) make moving Young extremely difficult.  Using my top-secret sources within the Rangers organization, I now can present this exclusive story on how the Rangers plan on dealing the disgruntled “infielder” before the start of the season.

There are a lot of things to like here, but I couldn't tell you what they are because my love for that Keith Law quote has blinded me to everything else.

Darn, I was hoping that Billy had swallowed his pride and had written a letter to his pal Dayton about acquiring Michael Young for Hosmer Mubarak or one of the other minor leaguers.

If that Flower Mound coupon could be for two nine-inch pies it might seal the deal.

Minor quibble: Despite non-threatening Anglo name, Michael Young is identified as Mexican-American.

Nothing up there suggests he is not Mexican-American...

Dan is wasted writing about baseball. He needs to take the next step and write about politics. If Nate Silver....

That "GROUPON Promise" could turn out to mighty expensive.

The Yankees could use him. And I guess could get, him for "just money"...he'd be another Randy Velarde!
Sort of.
