I can see all the whiffboy threads on him now
'm not sold on Bourn, but he's probably had more plate appearances then anyone in baseball the last two years. In other words, he's got a lot of strikeouts, but with all those plate appearances I'd be willing to bet his strikeout rate is about league average
He would be a replacement for jason bay with a few more hits.
If you perform in the areas you're supposed to, who cares about strikeouts? It seems like a ridiculous thing to worry about in today's game.
But strikeouts are actually NOT that big a problem for Bourn anyway. He's K'd at a rate of 20.3% over the past five seasons - not even in the top 100 of baseball. And the major league average over that period is 18.5%.
