Firstly, No(Bold underlined) I'm not saying the Mets should trade Dickey for him.
We should still figure out how to get him though. He is a good CF that I would like to have. Defense matters too.
I don't know what Gose can provide really at the major league level. I have no idea what his defense is like, I admit so I'm partial to Bourjous.
And lets also be fair to Bourjous offense, he did hit .271 when he was an everyday player. He plays better when its every day, opposed to a platoon situation it appears. Perfect.
dude....bourjos is the most overrated 4th of ever
they hate him in la....seriously...i live here....the fans hate him and the radio hosts are praying trout can stay in center so that bourjos isnt a starter...
gose is a better defensive player, has more pop, more speed, and a better eye at the plate
gose is basically a better version of bourjos in every way and hes like 3 years younger...
What I know is that Bourjos is a strong defensive CF, I'll grant you I don't know much about Gose so you may be right about his defense, but Gose hasn't really played much at the ML level, so honesty I can't make a great case.
I do know that in Bourjos' 2011 season when he played every day, he hit .270 .327 OBP with 22 SB 12 HRs. Thats fine. He is a major league ready outfielder.
Right now Gose seems like a younger Andres Tores. I know its only 166ABs but with a .303 OBP with that kind of speed... this guy should be forced to do push ups every time he hits a ball in the air or swings at ball 4.
I hope you are right.Bourjus is no MVP but as a rookie to hit 12 bombs, 11 triples 22 steals as a CF that plays great D, I think its a fantastic starting point.Slugged over .400 also.
If you think Gose is better I will take it.
