    I think the Texas Rangers would like to keep him due to his versatility and veteran presence, but, he is due over $60 million the next three years and they have already signed Adrian Beltre, Elvis Andrus and Ian Kinsler to play his primary positions.

    If they want to make a run at free agent pitchers like Roy Oswalt in 2012, I would trade him ASAP, but to who?

    The Colorado Rockies would make sense, as well as the LAA Angels or the LA Dodgers.

      I love Young, but he is nothing more than a mid range player on the decline, and is going to cost $48 million over the next 3 years. He doesn't produce much that you can't get off of the waiver wire, except his leadership, which we in Texas appreciate. However, not for $48 million over 3 years. If we can find a way to dump his salary, so be it. We aren't going to get anything for him, but that is too much to spend on a waiver wire type of guy at the end of his career.

    If they do, they would be stupid. They already lost their best pitcher. They still have a good team, that would hurt them bad.

    He could play 1st for them with mike napoli because nap will also catch and dh. I'd move kinsler to the of and have young at 2nd, it would work! Either is better then trading him, but i'll take him with the dodgers!!!

    Young is a great player there is no denying that the reason they Rangers want to trade him for a couple of reasons they would like to clear his contract so they can go after a top free agent pitcher, and they feel like they have no room for him. Hopefully the Rangers can keep him if not he will be a tough trade with two failed trades where do they go next maybe the Mets, Cubs, Doders, or Phillies are all good possibilites however you would think the Nationls may inquire so would the Orioles as well as Mariners may think he is a good fit. Still I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up somewhere other than one of the seven teams I mentioned because unlike most professional sports baseball is really hard to predict.

    I don't think they will trade him unless they get a top flight player.  That lineup is loaded and he's good insurance against injuries in the infield.  My guess is they keep him unless they get a top flight pitcher.  If they are out of it by mid season I could see a way that they may trade him but I don't think that is likely.  I think the Rangers are in for a fight with the Angels.  Should be fun!
