08:16 AM ET 02.08 | The Angels are reportedly believed to be among the eight teams to which Michael Young would accept a deal. Young, who starred at La Puente Bishop Amat High and UC Santa Barbara, would be a nice fit on an Angels team that got virtually no production from the third-base spot last season and whiffed in its winter attempts to acquire free-agent third baseman Adrian Beltre, who signed with the Rangers. Young, whose limited no-trade clause allows him to block deals to all but eight teams, hit .284 with 21 home runs, 36 doubles and 91 runs batted in to help the Rangers reach the World Series last season, and he has averaged 185 hits a year during his 10-year career.

That seems like a good fit, if they don't mind a few more errors from that position.

Wow TnR can't even get the headline right? Bad enough there are to Michael Young stories.

He won't be dealt in the same division, especially the Angels, or Angles...whatever you want to call that team.

I've like nearly all of Daniels moves. Making this one would be plain stupid, about like signing Beltre to $96Mil.

Man! Even T&R is replacing Young with Beltre. The dude just can't catch a break.

Yes he did. Once you include all of the years he played up to 43 years old.
