While the Mets campaign to get the 11th draft pick protected you will notice Bourn remains on the board. Is he and Boras holding off since the Mets offer the best fit? One way to answer the question is who in the USA (Toronto doesn't need him) is looking for a CFer and leadoff hitter who can afford Boras' demands? Is Boras telling Texas to wait until the Mets can make a formal offer just to spike the price to both? What have you heard out there re possible destinations for Bourn? I'm rooting for Bourn regardless of the draft pick outcome but if they lose the pick they should pay a little less. A lineup of Bourn, Tejada, Murphy, Wright, Davis, Buck or D'Arnaud, Duda and Nieuwenhuis/Cowgill is well balanced lefty righty assuming and works if Murphy pops 12 or more homers as #3....remember Keith Hernandez hit 20 homers only once I think....its all about clutch and RBIs..........this could be an exciting thing to watch. The chance of contending goes way up with a true leadoff hitter. Insightful comments welcomed.
