Looks good to me
thought you Wolverines (congrats by the way) were more savvy than that!!
no way that first deal is going down
i could live with that Bourne deal as there's really little option in our minors at this point or unless Gose comes back in the deal
Cody Ross AT THAT PRICE would be a decent move
i wouldn't do Hairston if we're going to get Bourn and Ross,i'd rather Kirk and Duda battle out left field
5m less on the payroll from Wright
5m less from Bay
5m less from Dickey
and we had 15m to spend
so that would be 30m to spend i think we could..
He bats .285-.300 with 40+ SB a year. He'd create runs that we miss from Reyes.
He'd be valuable, sure. But would I give him near to 15 mill a year for 4 years? No.
4/40 is most i'd be willing to go for him. I think other teams feel similarly since he hasn't been signed yet.
<<"He'd be valuable, sure. But would I give him near to 15 mill a year for 4 years? No."
Most people here would have been OK with that contract for Reyes last year.
Bourn's been much healthier tha Reyes and their offensive numbers are very similar.
Bourn is a great defensive CFer and leadoff hitter.
Bourn will turn 30 this month. I don't think it would be a terrible deal, anything less would be a real good deal.
