08:48 AM ET 02.13 | Michael Young is one of White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen's favorite players. He long has been one of Cubs hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo's favorite hitting pupils and could fill a nagging need of the Cubs as a leadoff hitter/second baseman. Could Young wind up in spring training with one of Chicago's teams instead of the Rangers?

Brent Morel is only a little worse than Michael Young to start at 3B. No way Sox should take on more cash for a lateral move.

The White Sox could use him and have pitching to give up which Texas could definitely use.

The Sox have no need for Young for one thing and another thing Kenny doesn't have anymore money he can spend. I'd trade Teahen for Young straight up though haha. But think about it we have the best defensive SS in the game already so that position is filled, Beckham's already at 2nd and I don't see them giving up on him just yet, they drafted him not even three years ago and he's been a good player for us since coming up in June of 2009. Omar will get the start at 3rd though probably which I don't like but oh well it is what it is, I see no room on the Southside for Michael Young.

He'd be a good fit on quite a few teams but it all comes down to Texas's asking price.

He makes no sense for the White Sox right now. Pitching is probably what the Rangers would want in return, and the Sox should hold onto what they have.

What, you don't want a declining, 35 year-old .280 hitting- below average defender, that is set to make 48 mil over the next 3 years?

Crazy.

Maybe they can work out one of those ARod deals where Texas picks up a lot of the salary.

You know what they really need? A nice, quality starting pitcher. Someone who played in the AL and was quite successful. The Giants have a guy for you. He's a little pricey, but he'll be worth it.

The Giants play in the NL West. The Padres got worse in the offseason, the Dodgers didn't do anything, and the Diamondbacks are the Diamondbacks. The Giants only need to beat the Rockies.

The Dodgers didn't do anything big but did a bunch of little things. They will be tougher than people think if this divorce crap stays off the field.

Agreed, but I do think Arizona will be improved this year.

That's an awfully big "if"
