Once Shohei Ohtani was off the table, Texas Rangers fans were going to need something seriously splashy at the trade deadline to lift their spirits. GM Chris Young knew it, and so he went out and added not only Max Scherzer, but also Jordan Montgomery to the rotation.

These moves obviously won him a lot of love from Rangers fans, but hearing him talk about the deadline process on Tuesday night's broadcast is even better.

None of us can really imagine what it's like working in an MLB front office with a busy trade deadline, but it can't be easy. This is their World Series. And Young gives us an insight, with sleepless nights and a truly mentally exhausting buildup.

But just listen to Young talk about that grind. He clearly loves it. He wants to do everything he can to help this team win. It's exactly how you'd expect a former ballplayer who still loves the game to approach it.

I'm sure some part of Young wishes he could even be out on the field helping the Rangers make their push in the AL West, but it's clear that he doesn't view helping the team from the front office as any kind of a step down.

We are lucky to support one of the premier organizations in baseball, and Chris Young is an absolutely perfect part of that — both with his skill and his attitude as a GM.

Coming off such a great trade deadline, the Rangers are firlmy in the conversation as one of the World Series favorites.
