Michael Young leaves check swing behind

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers third baseman Michael Young understands that his controversial check swing that turned into a three-run homer on the next pitch and broke open Game 2 is being hotly debated on television and radio programs nationwide.

He also knows he doesn't much care.

"I haven't seen too much of it. I was gone for four days so I went home and played with my boys, took them to school, went home played with my other one, let him throw food all over the house. That was how I spent my day," Young said. "I've seen it a couple times, but that game is over with. We've got to move on."

His check swing in the fifth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays has been added to other questionable calls so far in the division series going on in both leagues as the replay debate grows.

"Umpires are doing fine," Young said. "I've said this before, every year we play Cactus League games and we get half big-league umpires and half minor-league umpires and it's blatantly obvious which ones are the big-league umpires. They're the best. It is not an easy thing to do. They have already put in some replay to help everybody out, but I don't think it needs to be expanded any more."
