Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Source: No chance Twins will trade for Michael Young

The Twins are on the list of teams for which Rangers infielder Michael Young would approve a trade, but there is no chance that's going to happen now, a major league source said today.

This actually isn't the first time this scenario has come up. The Rangers and Twins have discussed a potential Young trade in previous years, but it wasn't a good fit financially for the Twins in years past, and certainly isn't now, with three years, $48 million remaining on his contract.

Young is a well-respected player, but many in the industry view him as vastly overpaid. The most likely outcome to this is that he'll remain with the Rangers, accepting a role as a roving infielder and DH who will still be in the lineup almost every day, just not at the same position.
