From the 2009 Rangers preview by the Sporting News:

2. Did Texas err by forcing Michael Young to third base?
All Young did last season was win a Gold Glove at shortstop. Because Young relocated once before -- he was a second baseman until the 2004 season -- his transition should be smooth. But it could be a rocky road for rookie shortstop Elvis Andrus, who never has played above Class AA and wasn't a polished defender there (32 errors in 109 games in 2008). This pitching staff doesn't need to get four outs per inning. However, the Rangers are intrigued enough by Andrus' bat (.295 average last season) and legs (54 steals) to shuffle their infield.

Words fail me.
