Forgot to post this yesterday.
Being favorites doesn't surprise me because of the need and Boras connection. What does everybody think? He would solve the CF/leadoff issue for sure. But someone will have to get traded because of it if LaRoche stays.

Washington has long had an interest in Bourn, and while rookie phenom Bryce Harper did a very nice job in center field, they could move Harper to a corner spot, with Michael Morse moving to first base. If the Nats are able to re-sign first baseman Adam LaRoche as they hope, they could then trade Morse.
