    Michael Young is quietly being shopped


    The Texas Rangers are quietly shopping shortstop Michael Young, said an AL executive whose team is in the market for a shortstop.

    Young, 32, will start to draw on a five-year, $80-million contract extension in 2009. The contract grants him full no-trade rights next season, then limited protection the following two seasons, by which time hell have 10-and-5 rights.

    The executive said the Rangers seek pitching preferably young pitching for Young, who is batting .300 with a .788 OPS in eight seasons. Its too early to determine the possible destinations, but the Blue Jays, Orioles, Cubs and Dodgers would have the need and financial wherewithal to make it work.

    On the other hand, the Rangers might be better off waiting a year, when the free-agent shortstop market is thinner.

    Somebody's gotta win and somebody's gotta lose and I believe in letting the other guy lose.

    with that contract all i can say is good luck to texas if they really are trying to deal him. they'll likely have to eat some of that money for it to even be possible.
