Would You Rather- Young or Frandsen/Galvis?
I am not a fan of a Kevin Frandsen/Freddy Galvis platoon at the hot corner next year, but I have to wonder if it would be as effective or better than what Young would do (and we know it would be millions cheaper!).
Michael Young has had a fine career in Texas- .301/.791, 2230 hits, 1085 R, 415 DBL, 177 HR, 984 RBI, but his glory days are behind him.
Also, this isn't a free agent signing, the Phils have to send something in return to the Rangers to facilitate this swap. Rumor is it will be a MLB ready reliever and a low level "prospect".
I pray that Young doesn't waive his no-trade rights. Then again, Freddy Galvis sucked at hitting while on PEDs, imagine him off them...
