Michael Young will play third base and he will like it.

So, nope. No Michael Young in Houston. The only place you'll see Michael Young this summer is either at third base, or plotting to eye-poke "Super Prospect" Elvis Andrus - a guy who, when you hear his name, you hate him already.

So let's get this straight. You're going to ask the guy who just won a Gold Glove (which are like the Golden Globes - stupid voting criteria, resulting in a meaningless award) at shortstop and is a 5-time All Star to move, and not the 20-year old kid.

But I think Jon Daniels might need to watch his back. Listen to this quote from Young:
"I don't think this is the time for me to switch positions," Young said. "I think I'm playing well. But it's not my call. My responsibility is to 24 other guys. I've talked to many of them over the past few days, and they support me. But I have to be fair.

If the other 24 guys (it would be interesting to see what Elvis Andrus has to say) have his back, that doesn't bode well for the GM.
