Michael Young: “He My Team!”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6-ks_UP988

For the sake of that little guy, I hope Michael Young is a member of the Texas Rangers forever.

One day, that young fella’s going to be a blogger. And he’s going to find that video. And he’s going to march upstairs and ask his mother, “Why?”

H/T: Old Time Family Baseball. I’m not sure what I’d do without you.

    I think this was my reaction when Ken Griffey Jr. demanded a trade from Seattle.

    I think people that use their kids as Youtube props are f-ing a-holes. If it IS legit and was not staged (A HUGE IF) then maybe that b*&ch should put down the camera and comfort her kid, rather than record his misery and post it on Youtube.

    God what a c-rag!

    This kid obviously doesn’t understand advanced statistical metrics if he likes Michael Young so much.

    ‘HE MY TEAM” could be the genesis of a great series of Not Graphs articles.

    Consider that even in the age of free agency, is likely at least one player on each team who is inextricably intertwined with the chemistry, feel, and makeup, and to a lesser extent, the production of the squad that he is absolutely necessary, and it is unthinkable that he would play anywhere else. I think this is a partly a question for stat-heads, but the qualitative dimensions are critical in this analysis.

    He My Team!
    Pujols on the Cardinals – HE MY TEAM!
    Ichiro on the Mariners – HE MY TEAM!
    Konerko on the White Sox – HE MY TEAM!
    Jeter on the Yankees – HE MY TEAM!
    Lincecum on the Giants – HE MY TEAM!

    As a Cubs fan, I’m not sure anybody has that hold over the hearts and minds of the Northside faithful.
