Michael Young has 'visualized' this

By Jeff Caplan

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers third baseman Michael Young is just a couple hours away from playing his first career postseason game in his home ballpark when the Rangers go for the sweep of their ALDS against the Tampa Bay Rays.

He's been through it all with this organization and Saturday morning he said he's seen this day in his mind many times before.

"Yeah, I visualized it happening many times," said Young, in his 10th season. "We knew it this year we had an opportunity to really make it happen. You know, we know in the postseason we are playing good teams, facing good pitching. But, this team has a ton of confidence, and we believe we can make good things happen out there."

If the Rangers can clinch in today's Game 3, it would create the first postseason celebration in the club's 38-year history in Arlington.
