rumor central... Michael Young to the...


Lots of speculation out there ( I guess because it's a slow Friday).  Last night, MLB Network Hot stove had their guys speculate on who has the goods to trade for Young... Their hypothesis is that if he's demanding a trade, he will open up beyond the 8 teams on his current contract (before his 10/5 kick in in May).  To the jump for some speculation:

Last night, I think it was Mitch Williams who suggested Joe Blanton and Placido Polanco for Michael Young... But how about this, from the Star Tribune in Minneapolis:

The Twins don't plan to sign him long term. Last weekend, they avoided arbitration with a one-year, $4.3 million deal. From what I've heard, their long-term talks went nowhere, with Liriano's camp hinting it wanted a three-year, $39 million contract.

For a guy on the rebound from injury, before his injury he had electric stuff... 3/39 should be easy for current mgmt, if they think this guy will stay healthy.  Of course, Texas would have to kick in some dough...

and here, speculation on the star tribune blog:
