BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-02-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think a Michael Young trade will be a swap of bad contracts or will TEX get some useful pieces and/or meaningful salary relief?
(Matt from Chicago)
To get much back they're going to have to eat some salary, so it's something of a closed system. Basically they have to pick one of salary relief or useful pieces. (Tommy Bennett)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)It seems many MLB clubs are in a race to claim their disinterest in acquiring Michael Young. Which club would benefit the most from getting him in your opinion? How much of his deal must Texas pay for you think the Young-acquiring club's decision makes sense?
(lemppi from Iowa)
Sorry I took so long to answer this one, lemppi - I thought I did, but it's still in my queue and I don't see it on the site, so I must have not hit (submit). Anyhoo, I haven't thought very deeply about this, since the money is hard to line up with a lot of teams. Who out there thinks Young can still play a reasonable SS? If so, there's lots of teams that could use his bat. Maybe the Cardinals for 3b, if they don't trust Freese? I would expect the White Sox could definitely use him at third, and Kenny Williams is just the guy to sell ownership and pull the trigger on that type of deal. (Ken Funck)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are there any options at third base, either in free agency or those that have been touted for trade, for the Bluejays so that they can stick Bautista in the outfield?
(garethbluejays2 from Newcastle, UK)
Michael Young, of course, if the Rangers want to eat some of his salary, though now that Wells is out of town there may be enough payroll flexibility to take him on. But honestly, if Bautista can play a reasonable 3B, why not let him stay there? It's harder to find a useful third baseman than a corner outfielder. (Ken Funck)
2011-02-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of line would you expect out of Aramis Ramirez this year? Last year was surely disappointing and someone is offering him to me in a fantasy trade for Michael Young and I am tempted...
(What the Funck? from Funkytown)
I am unabashedly a big A-Ram fan, and I expect him to bounce back. His consistency prior to his injuries was amazing. I'd prefer him to Young, but I can certainly understand why others wouldn't agree. (Ken Funck)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Michael Young will assimilate into a utility role in Texas or be traded before the trade deadline?
(jhardman from Apex, NC)
He's going to have to, because I'm a bit skeptical that a deal gets done, given his price tag. Nobody else has him hoisted on high in terms of their love of his past body of work, so he should treasure the commitment he does have. (Christina Kahrl)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)One spot in a keeper league left between Michael Young, Grady Sizemore and Weiters. Who do you pick?
(Tony from New Mexico)
What kind of keeper league? Salaries? Contracts? Just keep X number of players? Who else are you keeping? (Marc Normandin)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has any team in the AL W improved this offseason besides the A's? Think they could win the AL West next year? They have to make up some games on Texas, but they've added the guys to do it. The Angels have been snoring, the Mariners shouldn't be as terrible as they were, but there's still not much there. If the A's win the AL W, does that help or hinter their chances to get out of the hellhole that is Oakland Coliseum?
(Emily from SF)
I think the Rangers improved. They lost half-a-season of Lee, but Brandon Webb was a good bet as long as his arm is healthy, and the difference between Adrian Beltre and Michael Young is enormous thanks to the defensive difference between the two. The A's are interesting, and I think they closed the gap until the Beltre deal. That, to me, is the big difference between the two.

As for the Coliseum, winning will only hurt their chances if they start to sell out games. Does that happen in Oakland when they do well? (Marc Normandin)

2011-01-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Texas re-signs Vlad after the Beltre signing?
(The Dude from Home of the Champs)
No, because the aforementioned Michael Young will get most of his at-bats at DH. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-05-24 14:00:00 (link to chat)Your opinion of the following proposed trade: Astros Roy Oswalt and Hunter Pence to the Rangers for Ian Kinsler.
(CTM from Houston, TX)
This would be ghastly, especially for the Rangers. Pence may not really stick as much more than a filler in a corner in the better league, and the Rangers already have that on their bench in the form of David Murphy. Putting him in center seems a stretch, so he doesn't fix that problem. And then how do you replace Kinsler, bump Michael Young to the keystone and put Chris Davis at third? Arias and Blanco aren't viable everyday players. And all of this to get Oswalt, an older, shorter right-hander with health issues, coming to the DH league? As Eric Seidman argued this morning, I think any deal for Oswalt's only going to yield pennies on the dollar, given his contract. He's worth more to the Astros as an Astro than as something to dangle and then wangle with. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-13 14:00:00 (link to chat)You were pretty critical of the decision to move Michael Young off of shortstop to make room for Elvis Andrus, arguing that Young's bat wouldn't play at third base. Young's bounceback year notwithstanding, do you think that the significant upgrade defensively at shortstop and third base made the switch worthwhile at the end of the day, or do you think the Rangers would have been better off living with Young's sub-par glove at short and dealing Andrus?
(xxx from yyy)
I'm confident of the fact that, in this instance, history reflects that I was wrong, wrong, wrong. Props to Jon Daniels and company, props to Young for making himself a quality third baseman, and props to Andrus and what looks like an interesting future. Even if you let a little bit (or a lot) of Texas-related inflation out of Andrus' numbers, you have to like the upside given his age. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-10-02 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, please tell Ron Washington, Michael Young, and the hoards of Ranger fans that signing Marlon Byrd in free agency is a bad idea...
(Lincoln from Dallas)
The devil is in the details. I'd take Byrd back on a two-year deal for the kind of money those deals usually entail. It's a lefty-heavy outfield, and Byrd's a nice fourth OF. If it takes more than that, or any kind of PT assurance, you have to let him go. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Michael Young is a huge part of the AL playoff picture. When do the Rangers get him back in the lineup? Does he come back initially as a DH?
(WilliamWilde from Boston)
TR Sullivan said i t could be as soon as this weekend, which would be stunning. DH doesn't really help - its acceleration out of the box that did this, so it's still there. (Will Carroll)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Christian Guzman... is he really going to be as good as his projections say? Are his comps all late bloomers?
(krissbeth from watertown)
I just have a very real problem with taking Cristian Guzman all that seriously, but happily, Jim Bowden keeps him locked down with the Nats, essentially making the question academic (or one for the realm of fantasy). Snark aside, he's come back better than I expected as a hitter, but his comps (Schoendienst, Julio Franco, Michael Young, and Grudz) are cause for continuing optimism. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat)How long until Michael Young gets moved to another position? And where do you think he should end up, when he does move?
(Alone Again from Naturally)
For the Rangers, he's locked in at short as long as Ian Kinsler's his teammate, and I can't see a move to any other position than second base. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-07-29 16:00:00 (link to chat)Which team would hang up the phone first if a Lester and Bowden for Michael Young and Teagarden swap was proposed?
(Jay from Detroit)
Michael Young? No, not going to happen. But both Jon and Theo are very polite. I don't think there'd be a "click" on the line. (Will Carroll)
2008-03-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are we seeing the real Michael Young; a declining singles hitter who doesn't take walks, or will he revert to '05 form and justify that big extension and designation as face of the franchise?
(Or from Dallas)
Or: you don't want your #1 PECOTA comparable to be Jeff Cirillo. A singles hitter with mediocre speed is not a good profile for a player entering his 30's. (Nate Silver)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think the demise of Michael Young has been overstated? Look at his numbers after a really tough start.
(Jack from LA)
He hit .349/.399/.457 in the second half, which means he had an ISO of .108, not that good. Let's not forget he had a .410 BABIP (quick calculation, so correct me if I'm wrong) during that time span, and that sure won't hold up. (Marc Normandin)
