How To Not Start Spring Trading/Training

Glass Half Empty / Afternoon Cloud: Really Michael Young?  Do you not understand you absolutely drove down your trade value to nothing by going to the press and demanding to be traded?  You're 34 years old now, not 26.  And this is supposedly the post-steroid era meaing that 34 is now old again in baseball years.  Plus, you weren't that great at 3rd base last year (see playoff defensive lowlights).  Why not be happy being a part time DH/utility player and cashing that huge paycheck?

As usual the pitching is being questioned.  Can CJ and Cobra Lewis and Tommy Hunter do it again?  Is Feliz ready to be a starter?  Who's going to close?  Was Webb worth it?

And so long to Benjie Molina and Big Bad Vlad.

Glass Half Full / Silver Lining: Can you say defending American League Champion Texas Rangers?  Weird huh?  But, awesome. 

Thoughts / Observations / Sidenotes: It seems like everyone else in the division got better.  I don't know if the same can be said for the Rangers.
