    If you think about it, this garbage time signing is really worth $21 million, because we are paying $10 million to Young to do nothing for us.

    What a crock of ****.
    Aaaaaaand anything you say on PSD from here on out carries little to no weight. That is ****ing hilarious to call Michael Young a 5 tool player.

    MY isnt a 5 tool player but the point about this costing us 21 million cant be ignored. JD and Nolan have royally ****ed us in the a this off season. After we gave them 3 million in attendance too. I won't be going to as many games this year because I know my money won't be spent on improving this team in the long run.

    I assumed he meant 5 position player as he went on to describe that Berkman could no longer do anything but DH. Michael Young could at least play 1B, 2B, SS, 3B and DH if needed. Berkman's a bit one dimensional.

    Anyway...that's what I figured he meant by it.

    Who needs Josh Hamilton when you can have this for $11m?

    That would also be untrue, since Young can't play any 5 of those positions successfully anymore.

    Also, you people need to lay off of JD and Nolan, we arent signing any big names but who cares, Greinke was close and chose not to sign here, oh well, nothing Texas can do. Did you really wanna go to 6 years and over 150 for Greinke? Hell no.

    Did you wanna give Hamilton 5 years at 125? Hell no

    Did you wanna give up Profar for Sheilds? Ummm no

    Rangers still have a great young team that will still have a chance of winning the West and competing for a WS title this year and for many years to come.

    We still have the finanances to add major pieces before july 31st.

    We still have the pieces to trade for an Upton,Price,King Felix or Stanton if they become available and on the market.

    Calm down guys, we are fine.

    What move have we made since Nolan's group took ownership that makes you seriously believe anything we'd get at the trade deadline isn't a rental or that we'd be willing to make ANY trade involving any of the guys you listed there? No, really, I'm all ears.

    Call down, he's right I meant 5 position player. Maybe he can't play all 5 that great anymore, besides the $21 million cost, at least you could use Young at any infield position if you HAD to. Lance Berkman will be a glorified DH for his entire tenure here.

    Young was also ridiculously consistent being able to play. Where as Berkman has been a walking injury. He has never missed significant time with his entire tenure with the Rangers.

    He can't play ANY position in baseball at even replacement level.

    Reuben Amaro, an MLB GM, seems to disagree with you.

    Who needs Josh Hamilton when you can have this for $11m?
