Michael Young and Jon Daniels Channel Their Inner Teen Girl

For lack of a better phrase: What the hell?  No way can the Desperate Ballplayers of San Fran live up to this.

You know how teenage girls do this thing where they have a fight and then start relaying cryptic, snide messages to each other via a willing mutual friend?  Yeah.  I have a little experience with this.

Anyway, if you squint, then it would seem like Michael Young and Jon Daniels are getting in touch with their inner teen girl.  And relaying their cryptic, snide messages through a willing mutual friend; the press.

I was inclined to take Michael Young’s side on all this, even though I like Jon Daniels a lot, but after seeing his list of the eight teams he could be traded to I changed my mind.  Three NL West teams.  Rockies, Dodgers and Padres.  But not the Giants.  If Young is that intent on avoiding my two favorite teams, I have a hard time siding with him on this.  San Francisco is a beautiful city with a good team, nice(ish) management with a minimal history of pushing 6″1 guys into corners (big corners, huh?) and we harbor no hard feelings about him helping us win the World Series. 

So I am wearing my Team Jon shirt, eating popcorn and enjoying the show.

Just kidding. 

It seems inevitable at this point that Young will indeed leave Texas and that’s probably for the best with how much bad blood there is.  I hope the Rangers are able to fill that hole, because I think it could make or break the team in 2011.  It’s sad, Michael was a quintessential Ranger, but I hope it works out as amicably as possible in the end and Young is happier where he ends up. 

Baseball is a business.  Rinse and repeat.  3.0.

    I know the Cubs are not on the list, but I’m still hoping that Chicago can somehow work a trade out.

    Took a look at teams that Young doesn’t have on his no-trade list (Padres, Dodgers, Rockies) and cringed.

    Here’s to hoping Young and Rangers can work it out.
