Thanks For The Memories MY

I'm enjoying the nice attention Michael Young has been getting today after announcing his retirement.  I'm also happy to see he is retiring as a Ranger, and that he and Jon Daniels have repaired their relationship (although that's really none of my business so I don't know why I'm happy to hear about it).

The consensus on Young:  good player, not great, not a HOFer but it's not a ridiculous question to ponder, great teammate, great person.  That pretty much sums up the narrative I think.

Anyway, MY is one of my personal Hall of Famers and I'll miss watching him play.

Felt like he always got a big hit in the AS game.

I always liked Young, because he hit for average and had just enough power to keep me entertained. The only downside is that he often played his finest against the Oakland A's.
