both players are young enough to be around for a while and contribute and can add speed and defense up the middle
Bourjos has no place to play since Hamilton was signed and Borbon played the entire season at AAA as the Rangers have Gentry and Martin penciled in ahead of him vying for center
not sure what the cost would be but those would be two targets i'd call about
Bourjos and Borbon fill the criteria of being young AND having a ML resume
i think either of them would come at a reasonable price and could potentially be fixtures for years
true,but i'd rather get talent and worry righty/lefty later
and remember Duda,Kirk,Baxter,and Den Dekker are ALL lefty!!!
I'd go with Borbon of the two. He put up a very nice season in AAA where he could have just given up as he is now the Rangers 6th or 7th OFer. Career WAR of 1.8 is nice as well as his A+ Range in the OF. Most importantly when considering this team lately....cheap.
Shows you what great organizational depth the Rangers have in the OF when a guy with a career 1.8 WAR couldn't even crack the Rangers lineup for a single game.
