Young deal long from done. Rockies would have to take back $; players barely discussed; Rockies position on Young's no-trade list uncertain

Rangers would have to eat some money in deal and Young would probably have to move to second in Colorado.

So you're gonna pay about 24M of Young's contract (8M for 3 years) then sign Beltre to a 12-15M a year contract.

You're paying ~20M a year for your 3B for the next 3 years.

uhm no, he was just playing in the worst hitters park (safeco)

His defense is gold glove.

Go look at his home/away splits when he was with the Mariners... he was MUCH better away from Safeco Field.

He would be awesome in Texas.

Clearly 04 was an "enhanced" year, but his years in Seattle were thrown off because of the park and sh!tty lineup. He did well this year for our good ballpark and lineup. In 07, his best year on the Ms, his road OPS was .848. Not as much as what he did for the Sox this year, but still pretty good for a 3B.

Triple this.

Lol what a dumbass actually excited about getting Beltre. It's gonna be fun laughing my ass off when he's hitting .260. I can't believe another team would get suckered into signing this bum to another long term deal.

Noone can hit in Safeco, noone.

Plus, hes the best defensive 3b in MLB, Young = Worst

Even if Beltre struggles with the bat (lettuce be cereal though, that's not happening in Arlington), you can put money in the bank that he'll give you gold glove D.

I hate teaching you about the fiances of baseball, but I understand as a Rangers fan you don't understand this.

Adrian Beltre made $10M last year. He was an All-Star, and was a top 3B in baseball. Do you think the Rockies want to essentially sign a FAR inferior player to a 3/36M contract? Fuk no.

Michael Young isn't worth $12M a year. Maybe 8-10M. Just because you grossly overpaid for him doesn't mean the Rockies will.

And you say Young is the worst defensive 3B in baseball, and 2 posts up you talk about him being worth $12M a year?

The Rangers aren't eating half that contract sorry. A 3rd at the most.

Ichiro isnt a power hitter, the park probably helps a hitter like him.

Never said he was worth 12mm a year, just said the rangers arent paying anywhere near half.

Then the Rockies won't trade for him. They had an $84M payroll last year and just signed Tulo to a $20M/year contract. Do you think they want 15% of their total payroll in a sh!tty 3B?

He would play 2B for the Rockies, not 3rd.

How stupid are you? Seriously. Do you understand this?

If the Rockies take on Young, they take on his whole contract. THE ONLY NUMBER THAT MATTERS IS WHAT THE ROCKIES THINK YOUNG IS WORTH. They are the ones who determine how much they think he is worth, and if the Rangers want to get rid of him, they make up the difference if the Rockies view his value differently.

What the Rockies think Young is worth = what they will pay for him.

The Rockies aren't going to want Young at, essentially, a 3/36 deal. They don't want to pay $12M a year for a sh!tty 3B....especially considering that's about what Beltre will get, and he is MUCH better than Young. They'd rather pay him about $8M a year, and get him for 3/24. However, I will say they view Young as worth about 10M a year, and will want the Rangers to eat about $18M.

Do you know what a "salary dump" is? It's when you trade an awful contract for essentially nothing just to get rid of the contract. If you think someone wants to spend $12M a year on Young, urine idiot.

Before you guys keep making ignorant comments, Safeco is tailor made for lefty hitters.

I didn't realize him playing 2B drasticaly changed the value of his contract. Thanks for the help!

The A's offered him 5/64 and he ignored them. Beltre will cost 5 years 70-75 million

That is much less than 3/32 (rangers pick up a 3rd)

Young is worth 10 million a year for 3 years, especially if hes moved back to 2B where he will be better defensively as its his natural position.

Beltre played the same exact schedule as everyone else and still sucked balls, stop making excuses.

He did the exact same **** with the Dodgers so you can't even try to blame it on Safeco. The stats are so obvious even you can't ignore it. He's a fraud, always has been always will be.

He also ignored the Rangers when the Red Sox didn't have Adrian Gonzalez and he assumed he would go back there for about the same money. And if Beltre is worth 12.8M, Young is worth about 9 since Beltre was the best 3B in the AL.

The market for Beltre is shrinking with the As moving on and the Red Sox not having a spot for him.

A "salary dump" is taking a huge contract and getting a ham sandwich in return. It isn't cutting $4M a year off of a 16M contract. We had a "salary dump" when we dropped Lugo and his like $12M contract and got a struggling AA player.

Beltre never sucked in Seattle except for his last year.

He might not has been as good as the 2004 Beltre, but he didnt suck.
