Michael Young is having a tough time, is killing the baseball

I don’t feel terrible for Michael Young. He got a wonderful, wonderful contract a couple of years ago and, even if he’s not playing the position he wants to be playing and would prefer to be traded, he’s still getting the money. Yes, even rich people have problems and they can be legitimate ones, but there are even rich baseball players with bigger problems than Michael Young.

Here’s Young’s assessment of how it’s going so far:

“It’s definitely tough to get in a rhythm, without a doubt,” Young said. “If I was playing second every day, it’d be easier to get locked in. If I was playing third, it’d be easier to get locked in. It’s definitely tough to bounce around, but I’ve had to kind of get accustomed to it this spring.

“I’m going to treat every game individually. I have no idea what’s going to happen tomorrow, so I’m going to treat every game individually.”

Meanwhile, Young is batting .393 with two doubles and two triples in 28 at-bats.  I’m guessing that if he can deal with it, the Rangers can deal with it too.
