What Michael Bourn does is give us a building block to start next year with. It just comes down to the years on his contract, the money that comes along with those years, and if giving up a draft pick is worth it when the first two factors are taken in to account.
I am not a big fan of Michael Bourn. However if the asking price comes down to 3-4 years and we have our pick protected there would be no way you could pass that up. Adding Bourn this year and say Cory Hart next year with the influx of talent from the minors makes us a playoff team again.
