Will Mr. Ranger, Michael Young, Accept a Trade to the Philadelphia Phillies?

That’s what the Texas Rangers-loving world has been wondering even since word leaked out today that the Rangers and the Phillies have struck a deal to send the fan-favorite super-utility-guy to the Philadelphia Phillies, for whom he’d have a chance to be an everyday third baseman again. (He’ll likely see his playing time reduced substantially if he stays with the Rangers in 2013, because of the great young hotshots they’ve got on their team now: Jurickson Profar and Mike Olt.)

Young has the right to veto the trade, since he’s been in MLB for more than 10 years, and more than the last five years with the same team. (He’s only ever been a Ranger). So it appears to be entirely up to him.

How’s Twitter reacting to the possibility?
