Young ready for fresh start with Philadelphia

DALLAS Even though Michael Young had become known as the Face of the Texas Rangers, he knew it was time to go. The Rangers started making that clear around Thanksgiving, when they informed Young through his agent Dan Lozano that the club's all-time hits leader would get somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 at-bats in 2013.

Fare thee Well, Ben Revere

The Twins, taking my advice and not standing pat, continued making moves at the Winter Meetings to improve pitching in the organization, a desperate and drastic need, this time shipping out Ben Revere to the Phillies for a couple of young arms, and in a Shyamalanian twist the return they got for him looks more impressive than what they got for his predecessor (mentor?  elder?) Denard...
