I hope you're wrong on Young -- would love to see him as a Red. That could be the kind of move that pushes this team over the top. We've got the pitching. We need a 3B and another good RH bat. Young is both.
Young said he would only approve trades to the Rangers, Red Sox, and Yankees. I suppose he could change his mind, but I would be surprised.
