|MIKE!!! Please come back!|
|M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!|

Michael Young was a constant on this team and as a fan favorite for 13 years of mostly revolving door-madness. We said so long to a bunch of guys, some of whom were named Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, and Alfonso Soriano, during Young's tenure as a Texas Ranger. And all of those guys were supposed to be the face of this franchise at some point. But after all of those jerks left, only one champ remained standing: your captain, Michael Young.
I can remember that during the team's rise in 2010, everyone was clamoring for the Rangers to "do it for Michael Young". That doesn't happen for "okay" players or momentary heroes.
And damn they got oh so close...two years in a row...
