tal about our 2015 rotation with Dickey as the ace. Why can't the koolaiders ever get thier story straight. Please, just admit you will defend anything the Wilpons do or don't do.

Bourne is not very good.

Bourne uses his LEGS which will age A lot in those 5-years.

Bourne is asking for A LOT of Money, more than he deserves.

--------------

Dickey just won the CY YOUNG

Dickeys uses 70% of his actual physical effort to throw a Knuckleball every five days

Dickey is asking for a BARGAIN Deal.

- Thats why

You make it sound like RA Dickey will be an ace ion 2015 while Bourne will be in a wheelchair.

Clearly, RA is an exception to the aging rules for pitchers. Maybe Bourne can be a good leadoff hitter for us till he's 35.

what is your point?

1. - To say that everyone is wrong (except you) and that Dickey is too old?

2. - To say that everyone is wrong (except you) and that Bourne is NOT too old?

3. - To post still another redundant, pointless post saying that anyone that doesn't agree with you is a Wilpon supporter?

We should sign Bourn.

You are the living embodiment of the strategy that resorts to personal attacks if you can't discuss substance.

"You make it sound like RA Dickey will be an ace ion 2015 while Bourne will be in a wheelchair."

Its Very Possible that R.A. Will still be a stud in 2015, and Bourn will be a nobody with a bad contract.

Actually, a better chance.

this is pretty much a moot point as Bourn is too expensive for us never mind too old

but from purely a baseball perspective i can see a contender making an offer of 3 years and 36 million for example,maybe up to 40 million...Bourn is a good player but he is getting on in years and a 5 year deal would be too much

there's a reason why the Braves,who saw him play for them the last year and a half,didn't go as hard after Bourn than they did Upton and wound up giving Upton 5/75 i think it was

Bourn would make sense for us as one part of a relatively dramatic set of moves/deals to make us a contender by next season....right now to tie up 12-13 million a year in him with our team right now just wouldn't make sense even if we could afford it

You really think Michael Bourn is a $15-17 million player? That's what he's going to receive.

From who? How many teams are in the running for his services? If the Phillies get Hamilton, I doubt they get Bourn too.

You love praising the Wilpons and criticizing fans who want us to have a good team.

Strange but I read most posts on this forum and have never read one that praised the Wilpon unless it was for something they did for charity. Where did you see all these praising posts?
