Michael Young Gets $80MM Deal

Rangers shortstop Michael Young finalized his five-year, $80MM contract extension today.  The deal runs from 2009-13.

Granted, Young is a huge bargain for 2007-08.  The Rangers basically erased that advantage by overpaying him past his peak.  I will have more thoughts on this later tonight, but I have a feeling that this contract will not be well-received by analysts.

Lone Star Ball has a poll up about the signing; most Rangers fans responding feel that it is an "Okay deal for the Rangers -- they overpaid, but not by enough to make it a bad deal."
