MJH on accountability

Insider Rumor Wall
T.R. Sullivan has it here
I Hope Joey or Mike has a colum *ready when it DOES fall in place... Young has NOT decided yet.As of 12:12pm Sat-8th Dec
Hey douchebag, I hope that too, but until then I have to use the resources available to me to keep up with information as it comes out. ESPN and T.R. Sullivan are credible sources of news and I thought I would share with everyone that they say that he has accepted the deal. Keep your stupid, condescending posts off of this forum.
Evan Grant also confirms....douchebag
If you read Grant's article (if you can first sift through the backhanded shots at Jon Daniels and the nauseatingly heroic portrayal of M.Y.) it says that Young wants money to waive his NTC. So this thing isn't done yet. He still has to take a physical and everything. But for the most part it sounds like we're on the right track.
Bob Nightengale @BNightengaleBreaking: The #Phillies deal is done. They get third baseman Michael Young from #Texas
Bob Nightengale @BNightengaleYoung agreed to be traded to #phillies after receiving $1.2 million in benefits. #rangers
Fare thee well Mike. "He belongs to the ages." I'm sure Wash and Evan Grant will share a good cry later.
"On the Verge..." (per: T.R. Sullivan) ain't what you said. Talk in truths. We're ALLexcited about what's going to come down. Mike Young has been a polarizing player.We know the Big Picture will unfold, whether he stays or leaves. There's nothing moredeflating than to Find Truth and realize it's only another cheap rumor. C'mon patience.Now go play in yer sand box, cupcake.
Here is Joey Confirming what I just said. So now that Joey has confirmed it must be true @Hubz.....Douchebag.
I must say I'm a little sad to see him go. He was one of the best players to ver put on a rangers uniform, but he succumbed to the career-ending disease of old age. Wish ya well Mike.
"Let the haters rejoice"
No one hates Young. People hate a sub-700 OPS from their #5-6 hitter and DH. It all comes back to the manager. You know, that dumb manager we have that all us honkys hate cuz he ain't white, like you said.
@EODPhilYes, it must be TRUE, if Joey sez. Thatz what we all L@@K for, ugh credibility.A douche I am. I acquiesce to your brilliance & leadership qualities, cupcake.Now you can relax and enjoy your saturday routine at the local glory hole.
Scouting report on Bonilla:
BA's Jon Manuel and Jon Sickels on Lindblom (from July 31):
Before non-educated fans begin their rebellion, they better strike fast on some of their plans. I for one understand why and am happy he is not in the lineup anymore, but I cannot deny some bit of sadness after the official announcement was made.
I can admit when I'm wrong, I was wrong about JD not finding anyone to take Young. Peace out to my favorite Ranger, and good luck in Philly. Someone said a new era has begun in Arlington and they are correct. It's a sad day, but it is one that obviously makes the club better if Jon Daniels pulled the trigger on it.
BOY.....did JD just screw the Phillies or what?!?! Michael Young (AKA FACE) as your EVERYDAY 3B?
As some other poster wrote "he'll stand near third, but he's not a third baseman."
WOW. lol. I wonder how badly Cliff Lee wants out of there right now.
@ Kristen thanks for the info, Lindblom may not be exciting but Bonilla could be great. Time will tell. Now let's Sign Greinke, Josh and acquire Upton. Peace out MY, thanks for all your contributions.
The Phillies are not very smart, thats all I have to say. Just gave up an okay relief pitcher so they can have the worst defensive 3B in baseball who will have a sub .700 OPS.
You're correct, Jim, of course. I'll re-compose myself now.
I have a TON of respect for MY and his accomplishments in a Rangers uniform. Moreover, it's his attitude and work ethic I admire most.
He's the anti-Josh Hamilton.
I just don't respect the Phillies front office. Sorry if anyone was offended.
