Rangers Moving Young Not Necessarily To Afford Lee

In case you’re not sitting on Twitter or this Lone Star Ball thread, Michael Young continues to sit in the middle of trade rumors.

It does not appear necessarily to afford Cliff Lee, as said earlier, but perhaps rather Adrian Beltre, according to Evan Grant.

Multiple sources are claiming talks sit with the Colorado Rockies, with Ed Price stating the teams have agreed on players but are working out the finances.

Facing the prospect of Michael Young playing elsewhere is surreal, but losing even part of his contract and using the money to bring in a better all-around player in Adrian Beltre would definitely be a positive (on paper). Who knows, this could be done by the time I publish this.

It might be time to start getting your favorite MY memories ready, Rangers fans.

UPDATES AFTER THE JUMP

Jeff Wilson says that the talks are "in their infancy."
