done deal. Young to the Phillies for De Fratus and OF Leandro Castro.
scratch that. bogus report
Thank god. I would be mad if they traded DeFratus for him. Rumors have been Lindbolm and a low A spec
yeah, would like to hang on to defratus...lindbolm is decent and I could see that....
I just wish it were done already so we could move on one way or the other!!
Evan Grant, Dallas Morning NewsQuote:
Michael Young, the guiding force in the Rangers clubhouse and on the field for the last decade as the team stormed to prominence, has indicated a willingness to accept a trade that will send him to Philadelphia, according to two major league sources.
This is worth the risk for the Phillies. Third Base Market is so barren this Offseason.Quote:
The Rangers will receive 25-year-old RHP Josh Lindblom and a minor leaguer, believed to be 22-year-old RHP Lisalverto Bonilla. Lindblom would definitely go into the Rangers’ bullpen as a sixth-inning or later option. Bonilla, who had 64 strikeouts in 46.1 innings split between Class A and Double-A in 2012, would likely not be an option for the major league club at the start of the season.
Young had just a terrible season but with a fresh start and more time in the field can bounce back to form.
Wouldn't be mad at that deal. Lindbolm was poopy
Lindblom in Arlington with that fly ball rate is probably going to be lolzy
Yah I can't wait to see that.
Lol MY wants compensation for accepting the trade. Lololol
They gave MY a full NTC for coming here. LOLOLOL that's so Ruben
Meh, the NTC doesn't mean much...what kind of compensation is he looking for lol?
He's looking for 1.2 mil I'm benefits. Team player Michael Young is a huge *******
Who did we give up?
