    He sounds like a good all around ballplayer.

    The roster needs an injection of those types, and less of the unidimensional guys.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    I like Gee a lot actually. Tells you how much I like Bourjos.

    We need great defense more than power.

    True. However, Bourjous isn't exactly the greatest hitter either. I like him but I don't know if I like him THAT much.

    You have guys who make up for their defense with offense and then you have guys who make up for their offense with defense. It's just that you have many more opportunities on offense.

    Bourjos is not...that...good. We don't need another offensively inept player on our team. Sure he is good defensively, but we won't need to give up Gee to get someone like that.

    How many offensively inept players do we have in our projected starting line-up? C-d'Arnaud, 1B-Davis, 2B-Murphy, SS-Tejada, LF-Duda, CF-Kirk, RF-Baxter

    Why is Ruben Tejada an acceptable player in the big leagues? He plays solid defense at a premium position, SS. Bourjos plays a premium position in CF and plays it better than any major leaguer. His bat was above average in 2011.

    Astros have some specs, I doubt they'd be interested in trading them for Duda. It would be like the Mets trading specs for Duda.

    It's a decent comparison, but I think Duda is worth more at the plate than Kingman was. Kingman's career OBP was .302. Duda could be a .340-.350 guy which makes up for the 10-15 extra home runs.

    If Bourjos can replicate his 2011 season, he'd be a tremendous asset to any team that has him. He'll only be 26 next year. If he gets traded somewhere where he'll play, I predict a solid rebound (So does Ron Shandler, who has him pegged for 15 HR, 25 SB if he gets PT). Throw in tremendous D, and he's a winning player for whoever gets him.

    Mejia or Familia for Bourjos would be a win for the Mets IMO.

    My reason for calling him Darno is to remember that's how it's pronounced. I have a nasty habit of reading it as De-ar-nod. Its a temporary fix

    Yeah he does not give a ****, he's a hard-nosed 110% kind of player with all-around skills. Welcome addition, he scored from 2nd on that wild pitch.

    Another big time move for this team, what's next Coco Crisp? Scott Hairston? Who knows the possibilities are endless!

    He's an Affordable Place Holder. Whether he'll be a productive one like Hairston or a stiff like Hu or Eamus remains to be seen.
