Could we trade for Michael Young

I'm sick of hearing about this. First of all, Michael Young isn't that good anymore, particularly when you consider what he is being paid. His bat is in decline and he plays terrible 3B. Like his 3B defense is probably "worst in MLB" bad.

 

Texas is almost in a Vernon Wells type situation with Michael Young. The Marlins should want no part of him.

Look at his contract, look at his road splits and then look at his age and then get back to me if you want still want Michael Young

 

 

Well said.

He can't field any position really well, either. -10 and -3 at 3B the last two years. He had two good years at SS when he was a +10 and a +4 in '08 and '06 but he also posted a -8 in '07 and before that, he was a -31 (:o) and a -25 in '05 and '04.

 

Review: old, big contract, sucks on the road, can't field. No thanks.

how about they pay all but 45 millions dollars of his contract, then I think he is worth while.

 

This isn't a video game, that's not happening unless we give up something significant, which makes no sense

 

Of all people, a FutureGM? You should know, all he needs to do is put all of his picks and the other GM will be so stupid as to let him go :p
