REPORT: Red Sox Want Michael Young Badly

Is Young Headed To The Hub?
Not that we like to gloat, but FenwayNation did advocate for a Michael Youngnot Jonathan Papelbon—deal with the Phillies in an article back on June 24th. Gee, maybe BenCher and the Baseball Ops boys actually read us. Nah. Anyway, according to George A. King III of the New York Post, the Red Sox "badly" want Young to solidify third base for the balance of the season. With Will Middlebrooks banished to AAA and Jose Iglesias out of position, Young would be an ideal choice at third. He is hitting well, is healthy and would be a huge stabilizing force on both offense and defense. Ben, if you need any more advice, give us a buzz.
