Let's Get Michael Young

Michael Young is reportedly demanding a trade from the Texas Rangers. The shortstop has hit over .300, played over 150 games and played good defense consistently for the past six seasons. The Rangers are asking him to switch to third base, to make way for something called Elvis Andrus. Young refuses, and gave the Rangers a list of teams to whom he'd accept a trade.

I've consulted Alright Hamilton MLB Hot Stove Correspondent, Tony F. Rezac.

AH: The Twins should trade for Michael Young.

TFR: he's pissed about having to switch positions.... again

AH: yes, he came up as a second baseman. Do you think the Twins have interest?

TFR: Well, he would fit right in, except he's kinda overrated. And we wouldn't want to shift around the staples we have in the infield.

AH: Oh yes, I forgot our big offseason move: signing Nick Punto to play shortstop.

TFR: ha, and we have a 'can't miss' second basemen in Casilla, and you can't argue with Buschers .306 average.

AH: Riiight. But it wouldn't take a lot to get him, relatively.

TFR: How do you mean?

AH: It's so late in the offseason, and he's forcing them to trade him, and there's only a few teams he would go to and only a few teams that would go for him. And we've got money.

TFR: True, but Bill Smith has been asleep at the wheel. Not a single move other than singing Punto to be an everyday player.

AH: Well yeah, there's no way it'll happen. But it should be considered more than it is. Or something.

AH: 1.21 gigawatts!

TFR: ha, I love that movie.

AH: Check this shirt out.

TFR: That's great

TFR: They are making a movie about the end of the world in 2012.

AH: Who are?

TFR: One of the major movie studios. I just watched the trailer on imdb

AH: Looks good?

TFR: No, no it does not..... but it has to be better than "The Day After Tomorrow" doesn't it? that movie was awful.

AH: Why is the world going to end in 2012?

TFR: the Mayan calendar ends December 21st, 2012.

AH: Oh my god, does anyone else know about this?

TFR: But for them the world ended in about 1500, so they were way off.

AH: It's just when they ran outta paper, or realized, "hey wtf am I doing writing an infinite calendar?"

TFR: my calenders always end on December 31st, but I wake up every January 1st.

AH: Booya.

TFR: Listen to Phil Collins - Easy Lover

AH: Priceless.

Easy Lover is the best song in history. A history that will go on well past 2012.

this post reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where Jerry and George pitch a show to NBC.

"Why would I read this blog?"

- "Because it's on the internet"

Easy Lover makes me want to star in an 80s crime drama.

I would take Young...and then make him play third base, and then tell him he just got punked. He would be embarrassed, and we would all have a good laugh.

My computer calendar only goes til December 2099. Remind me to tell my children about that day being the end of the world.

That reminds me of one of my favorite Jack Handy quotes:

-I bet a fun thing would be to go way back in time to where there was going to be an eclipse and tell the cave men, "If I have come to destroy you, may the sun be blotted out from the sky." Just then the eclipse would start, and they'd probably try to kill you or something, but then you could explain about the rotation of the moon and all, and everyone would get a good laugh.


My geography teacher in 7th grade told our class the world was going end in 2012 and from what I can gather geography teachers are never wrong.

Is this the same teacher that kicked a whole in the wall?

Shit, what was his name... coached middle school basketball. Big guy.

Is that the guy? I think i remember that.
