105.3 THE FAN – The Texas Rangers will honor Michael Young at a pregame ceremony this Saturday at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

The Rangers legend took some time to talk to New School on 105.3 The Fan on Thursday about the current state of the club.

Many have speculated that manager Ron Washington could be on the chopping block should the Rangers fail to make the postseason. Young doesn’t believe that’s fair — at least not with the recent injuries that have decimated the pitching staff.

“You’re probably talking to the wrong guy, cause I’m Wash’s biggest supporter,” said Young. “Just speaking objectively, I think it’s very unfair to judge Wash on this. To say this team is snake bitten or hamstrung by injuries would be a massive understatement. One of Wash’s biggest strengths as a manager is getting the most out of his players and getting through top spots. This is where Wash will excel actually.”

Young was also asked about comments made by former teammate Ian Kinsler, who was critical of the organization and Jon Daniels following an off-season trade to Detroit.

“I can’t really answer for Kins — he’s one of my best friends in the world and I’ll support him til the day I die,” said Young. “The one thing I didn’t mind was him saying, ‘I hope the team goes 0-162.’ I don’t mind that one bit. I felt the same way last year.”
