Well lets just see how these next few days pan out.
Too bad Laroche isn't a LF... and right handed... and can run a 4.4 40.
I just have a feeling Bourn will be a Cub.

I think he goes to Seattle.
I'm still not fond of 2 CF's

someone laughed at 14/year for bourn. how is 4-52 any different. i, for one, favor a 4-52 contract for bourn, but i think it's absurd when one idea is ridiculed, then someone else says the same thing and suddenly it's not only feasible, but the best thing since white on rice.

"of course tom 'jan' brady would whine about a rule change."
1) Please quote where I ever "laughed at" $14 million per year for Bourn. The contracts that I have discussed for Bourn have always been five years and $75 million or greater, since that's what I thought (and still think) Bourn will get. At those prices, no way.
2) Please quote where I ever said that 4 years and $52 million is "the best thing since white on rice." I said, "4 years and 52 million, maybe" with a question mark at the end. In case you're not familiar with a question mark, it suggests uncertainty.
Either way, my opposition to re-signing Bourn (or to acquiring any player, for that matter) is never absolute. It's always contextual, with price being the main context. At 5/75, it's a no-go. At 4/52, you're talking about 30% less money, and crucially, you're also not talking about a fifth year. Length is the bigger concern for me, far more than annual value. I really wanted to put 3/39 on there, but that still just sounded too far-fetched.
I read on Twitter that the Marlins are listening to offers on Stanton
