My sources on the inside have told me the Mets are about to announce the signing of Bourn. Not sure what's going on with the pick but I assume MLB has ruled it's protected, otherwise the Mets would not have signed him.

Expect an official announcement soon.

I can't really say until I see the contract and the compensation.

I'd LOVE for it to be true but he's only been around since December 10th and didn't have any advanced info on Marcum or Lyon. And he posted a trade for Dickey that turned out to be false. But it'd be amazing if for once somebody claiming to have inside information here actually did.

You all have short memories. He broke the David Wright signing before Ed Coleman who grabbed the credit.

Since this account has only been here since December 10th, I guess he did this on another?

Alex had the signing locked down in the afternoon & Eddie C reported it after midnight. I remember the details.

Mike Cameron averaged 50 steals?

The two players are not similar at all. Cameron was an excellent centerfielder who hit for power, struck out alot and stole some bases -20 to 30. Bourn is a very good centerfielder, who steals bases - 50+ - and hits alot of extra base hits and strikes out alot. Bourn is a lead off hitter and Cameron was a #6 type hitter.

Bourn is not a superstar. That's why he's still out there. He is a major upgrade to the Mets lineup if Alex is right. He upgrades the top of the lineup and solidifies the CF defense in cavernous Citifield.

This board is full of "don't sign this guy he's not worth it" and/vs. "why aren't you doing anything". So funny to me..yet so sad! haha
