On Sunday, Evan Grant wrote his opinion at the DMN blog that Michael Young only be losing around 50-70 due to this switch.

Meanwhile, the Rangers played their first ever spring training game as defending champions of the American League, and that means it's time for more baseball polls (until March Madness and the draft start, at least). So we'll stay topical: how many plate appearances is Michael Young getting in 2011?
