From the June 18 Newberg Report:

For all the ill will that White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen harbors towards the Rangers, he said this to reporters about Michael Young on Thursday: “They’ve got one player over there that’s everyone’s wish, the shortstop. That’s everybody’s dream. A lot of people talk about Derek Jeter. A lot of people talk about Miguel Tejada. A lot of people talk about other players at that position, but he’s a manager’s dream. He’s the best. This kid can do anything in baseball that he wants to.”

Guillen added: “I’d take that kid everywhere with me.” Which I suspect will include the All-Star Game in three weeks in Pittsburgh.

It’s the most sensible thing Guillen has said in a long time.

Congrats to second baseman Michael Young, All-Star Game MVP.

I swear, that is not the last time Michael will shake Bud Selig’s hand.

Unless Bud gets bounced before Michael hangs ’em up.

I give Ozzie credit for being a great baseball mind and knowing a special player when he saw one. Speaking of the MVP, nobody deserved it more that Michael Young. Now the rest of the baseball world can see just why we like him so much here in Texas.

I am so glad that the empty golf shirt did not trade Michael.

Is this award a big step towards Canton for MY? It does give him a lot of national exposure for all the right reasons.
