MV5BMTE5NTQwMzMwN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNDYxNzQ2._V1._SX450_SY315_Fred Gailey: Look Doris, someday you're going to find that your way of facing this realistic world just doesn't work. And when you do, don't overlook those lovely intangibles. You'll discover those are the only things that are worthwhile.

"The lovely intangibles" Yeah, like Young's leadership ability. He sure took Hamilton to task for swinging at pitches in another zip code, didn't he? As a first-pitch hacker himself, Young had no ability to reprimand Hamilton for his free-swinging, strikeout-prone approach at the plate. Leadership in the clubhouse is over-rated. You lead by example in the field, and Young's on-field leadership led the Rangers to be overtaken by an Oakland team of castoffs and rookie pitchers who were 13 games behind us on June 1. We don't need that type of leadership. We need someone who will call players to task for swinging at 3 pitches in the dirt, a foot or 2 outside: Young couldn't or wouldn't take Hamilton to task, so people who say he was a leader, that his leadership will be missed, I say they couldn't be more wrong. Beltre and Andrus will provide better leadership on the field than Young ever did. Young is going to be booed out of Philadelphia by June, and the Rangers will be just fine if they fire Washington and get a real leader, a real game manager, who won't put a single players well-being above the team's, like Washington did with Michael Young, who had no business EVER batting in the middle of this lineup, especially hitting 4th in the 2011 World Series. That decision, with Mike Napoli, Beltre, and Cruz all tearing the cover off the ball, was the single worst decision EVER in World Series History, and Washington should have been fired immediately after the series ended. At least Young is now gone, so Wash can't olay him any more, which he would have, every day, had Young remained on the team.
