There was a recent report that was confirmed by the Texas Rangers front office that Michael Young has requested a trade.
Let's make something very clear, there have been very few players that have meant as much or more to the Texas Rangers than Michael Young. He has done everything that the organization has asked him to do; move to SS and move to 3B. He's about to move out of the 3B role after the Adrian Beltre, and Young was more than accepting to take on a role as a DH. Fair. Then, they deal for Mike Napoli to be their DH, when in fact he should be their catcher because, Napoli hasn't earned it yet with the Rangers to dictate where he should play. And who's the one that gets slighted, Michael Young.
It is absolutely astounding how many times the Rangers have shot themselves in the foot with the moves that they have made this off-season, but with the way they have treated Michael Young, for what he has done for them, and how he has performed for them, through thick and thin, this is just mind-boggling. Young has every reason to be fuming and should request a trade. The Rangers, right now, do not deserve to have Michael Young on their roster.
Any thoughts on the matter.
