I just read an article that talks about why Bourn is a perfect match for the Mets.
I know a huge concern for Bourn is losing the 11th pick. But signing him to a deal could also make him trade bait at the deadline if this team is out of contention.. We could possibly get a better value (a more MLB-ready prospect with similar potential.. ala Wheeler/TdA) than that 11th pick by trading him.
And.. Let's say this team with Bourn becomes a contender, then next offseason the Mets are only an OF piece away from being a legit team.
I think the 11th pick is a little overvalued when compared to the value of Bourn to the Mets by a landslide
