If you haven't seen this video of a mother telling her three year old son that his favorite baseball player, Michael Young, will probably be traded from his favorite team, the Rangers, you should. It's as adorable as it is heartbreaking. At first he doesn't understand what his mother is trying to tell him. Once he figures it out, the little boy becomes both deeply distressed and saddened by the news. I think it's safe to say that baseball lost a young fan--no pun intended. Hope you enjoy the video!
Also, it might be a little quiet content wise over the next couple of days. For those of you who don't know, as a columnist for Fire Brand of the American League, I've been given an opportunity to write an article for ESPN. Originally, my article was supposed to about Derek Jeter's prospects for returning to form, but that article proved to be too long for ESPN. Instead, that article will run at Fire Brand on Friday morning. In it's place, I'm putting together a commentary piece on Hank Steinbrenner's recent comments. If you're interested, you'll be able to read it on Thursday afternoon at the ESPN Sweet Spot on the MLB page.
