Hot Commodity Michael Young has Red Sox Attention


Michael Young homered last night, making his trade value never higher.

If there’s anything the Red Sox are desperate for right now, it’s professionalism.  Lord knows they’re a bunch of gigglepusses, frolicking about up there playing grab-ass and such until whoops-se-daisy, the Rays are in first place.

A guy like Michael Young could kick their doors in and whip these whipper snappers into shape.

Hey, you, Shane Victorino – quit giving people noogies and putting firecrackers in the toilet.  This here’s a baseball team, and I’m here to make sure this wanton jackassery comes to an end.

Meanwhile, Ben Cherrington is standing in the doorway, arms folded, smiling and nodding.  He didn’t trade three of his best prospects for anything less in the leadership department.  Better yet, Young wouldn’t have to play in the field, because the American League has a thing where a guy can be in your lineup to hit only.  What a concept.  It’s almost as if that’s where he belongs.

But the only person who might  disagree is Michael Young, whose got that no trade clause, so today is going to be a lot of stupid posts like this one.
