My Unicorn!

Michael Young is a Phillie.

Oh, Despicable Me.

That was how I reacted.  Michael Young was my unicorn in that he was like a fluffy stuffed animal and I was very attached to him and more specifically, attached to him as a Ranger.  That man was a Ranger for a very long time.  “How long, Obi Wan Kenobi?” Luke Skywalker might ask.  “A very long time,” Obi Wan would answer.

Now I get that baseballisabusinessMichaelYoungisstillabaseballplayertheRangershadtodoit and all of that, but I’m still sad.  These made-over Rangers are going to take some time to get used to.  (Mike Napoli in Boston red, what is up with that.)  I wish I had Gru to take me to the amusement park to get a new Michael Young in a Rangers uniform.

I blame Hollywood for giving us kids false perceptions of beauty and false hopes about what happens when our stuffed unicorns are disintegrated.

p.s.  Presumably Young had some say/a lot of say in where he landed, yes?  Which would mean that he chose Philadelphia?  But who would willingly choose to live in Philadelphia and be a Phillie?  I bet he and Cliff Lee are going to be besties.

    I kind of scratched my head about why Texas would want to trade him, esp. with Hamilton still a question mark. We understand how you feel here, we felt the same when Russell Martin went to the Yankees.
    Why would he want to go to Philly? Philly is a real city, and it is near NY and Boston. I’d much rather live there than Atlanta or St. Louis or Phoenix or Denver or . . . .
