Not worth $100 million.
bourn is what. A younger Pierre, who doesn't have a noodle arm, better defensively, and higher OBP and a miniscule amoune of power (which Pierre has none). I'd be ok with a 5 year commitment if it was around or under 70.
People have been talking about this, so it isn't anything new, but I saw on MLBTR that Buster tweeted this last night:
As gocubs said yesterday, the Giants would probably be favorites for Victorino in that situation.Quote:
Philly continues to go hard on Angel Pagan; Giants look to be short right now on how much they're offering annually, in a four-year deal.
I think Bourn would be fine for 4 or 5 years. He will play all next year at 30. So a 5 year deal has him playing at 30 thru 34. I think he will still be as effective as he currently is. The question I have would be at this level is he worth $15M a year. I guess $15M doesn't get you what it used to.
There always a suprise team, but it seems not alot of teams are going to want to give Boras/Bourn 100mil and Phills/Giants are looking at Pagan/Victorino. So Bourn could be had. I know our FO is smart not to compete against themselves so hopefully if do sign Bourn its for 5yrs 75-85mill.
rather than spend big on bourne how about a buy low on brett gardner he was injured a lot last year
He's also very wiry, and he sort of coils himself up before he swings.
Different build. If a big boy like Dunn had Sori's athletic ability he could hit the ball a country mile.
Has there been anything about Bourn to Milwaukee? That would make a lot of sense.
