    I'm pretty sure Bourn was offered the qualifying offer. So if they sign him (which they seem to have him targeted) they will lose a pick. I just don't know if I'm in love with Swisher for 4 years @ 12-14 milllion, where the only real above average thing he will bring is his plate discipline and walks (which I can see his OBP dip a bit when his average potentially takes a hit playing here). I just don't see his power numbers here (especially from the left side) and he doesn't bring a ton defensively. Signing Bourn for 5 years would suck in years 4-5, but at least for the first 2-3 years he would play gold glove defense, get on base at an above average clip and steal a ton of bases.
