ARLINGTON — For seven hours earlier this month Chris Young sold the semi-retired Bruce Bochy, the winner of 2,003 games and three World Series as a major-league manager, on coming to work for the Texas Rangers.
The same Rangers who lost 102 and 94 games the past two major-league seasons and have zero World Series trophies.
Young took his case to Bochy’s home in Nashville, where Bochy and wife Kim allowed the sales pitch to go on and on without kicking the salesman to the curb.
Bochy was interested, more than he had anticipated.
