In a complete contradiction of what Red Sox GM Ben Cherington told the media last night, it appears that Boston may be back on track for acquiring third baseman Michael Young. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Young has backtracked on his position that he only wanted to be traded to the Rangers. This morning, he says he would accept a deal to the Red Sox. This would explain not promoting Will Middlebrooks from AAA—who seems like a better option than Young at this stage. Curious! Stay tuned, sports fans!
