What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability

This is what I posted on this site a month ago. January 11th, in the comments thread attached to the column entitled "Jim Thome-To-Texas Redux" by Joey Matches. (And man, do I wish we'd gotten Thome! A straight platoon of Thome vsRHP and Napoli vsLHP would be Josh Hamilton-esqu in total productrivity).
"I have a little conspiracy theory percolating around in my head. Let's lok a some recent events
Rangers rumored to be interested in dealing Young to Rockies
Rangers in on Beltre.
Questions about Young's playing time
Word comes out in one of the papers that Young expects to play the field everyday
Young talks to a local columnist saying he would move to DH if it would help the team
Rangers sign Beltre, annouce Young as DH/Utility
Rangers in hot pursuit of a DH-only player
What I wonder is if there isn't a major rift between Young and JD stemming from the public blow-up between the 2 when Young was moved to 3B. wonder whether JD didn't ask Young about moving to DH with the idea tha Young would say no, clearing the way for Young to be traded. I wonder whether the FO didn't plant that rumor that Young refused to move, only to be countered by Young publicly accepting the move. And I wonder whether the Thome pursuit, in addition to being about making the team better (which t assuredly would) isn't partly about pissing MY off enough to get him to demand a trade. I could be totally wrong about all of this and can't support any of it with evidence. But it seems like a possible explaination for what is going on here. After all, Young is just about the last guy left on the team who sn't a product of JD either breinging him in or developing him up. And JD is a isn't a product of JD either breinging him in or developing him up. And JD is a smart, head-over-heart guy who probably knows this team would be better with Young gone and a cost savings of $8m/yr over the next 3 years"
