If you knew nothing about baseball and tuned in to last Sunday's contest between the Rangers and Astros, you would have thought Michael Young had either died recently or was some kind of omnipotent super-being who benevolently watched over humanity until he was cast out by a shortsighted Texas front office. How will we survive without our .682 OPS superstar?
Well, if that's what you think, you just don't get it, man.
