It looks like all the buzz around Michael Young involves him waiving his no trade clause to head to the Phillies'. After spending time at all four infield positions last year, would Young be an acceptable plug in at the keystone? The Phillies are going to be deadbeats next year, why at the stage of his career would he choose to go to a team with a bleak immediate future? If anything, Young is a proven team player, the kind of "clubhouse" veteran that Mo and the Cardinals seem to have coveted lately. He would be a considerable upgrade and a stabilizing presence at or near the top of the order, plus he could get the playing time he desires. I believe we have room in the payroll for his salary and would not have to give away much of our surplus pitching to get him. Thoughts?
