Beltre Close to Deal with Texas

Many sources say Adrian Beltre is close to a deal with the Texas Rangers. This could mean Michael Young is available. Although he is making over 13 mil next year, he would be a great fit for the Twinsif they could get Texas to pay some of his salary next year. He is a career 300 hitter andaverages around 20 homers and 40 doubles a year. He was at 3rd base last year but won a gold glove at short in 2008. The Twins could move him back to shortstop and Alexi Casilla back the super utility role. Also he could be insurance if Danny Valencia struggles and 3rd base like Parker Hagerman of Star Tribune thinks he might. We could just moveYoung back to 3rd and let Cassila play Short. To have Young bat 2nd in the lineup with Mauer and Morneau behind him that's probably the best 2,3,4 lineup in the game. All can hit 300 and all have hit 20 or more homers. He's just the right handed bat we need and with Beltre signing with the Rangers means he will most likely be traded, hopefully to the Twins.
