Michael Young, the anti-A-Rod, getting another well-deserved honor

Tuesday January 21st, 2014
Michael Young (left), who will be honored by the B.A.T. on Tuesday, has kept a far lower-profile than fellow perennial All-Star and one-time teammate Alex Rodriguez.

He is a free agent now, looking for work -- don't believe that retirement talk, Young wants to play -- and he could still be an asset at the right price. The Dodgers need infield help and Young's old Rangers need another righty bat. Maybe the Orioles could use him. Maybe the Red Sox. And oh yes, of course, let's not forget that the Yankees have an opening at third.
