I was completely thrilled when Cameron gone from Shea anf put on a different uniform.
The only advantage of Bourn is that he'd be the only proven major league player in a outfield mix full of question marks.
But even that isnt really worth over paying in dollars and years for - especially if it means still finishing in the same position regardless. And I would give up even a 2nd round pick for him, let alone my first round pick.
It is troubling....Mets can strike out plenty without him.<
They should Play Kirk or Dan Dekker. They can strikeout just like BrounAnd they only have to pay them the minimum to do it. Instead of spending millions on Bourne.
"Plus Cameron was hands down the better defensive CF. Kind of puts things in perspective with Bourn."
I always thought his fielding was underrated despite his 3 GGs.
I liked mike Cameron - he was the right player to sign at the time.
With that said, Bourn is the right player now because he fills two voids - CF and leadoff hitter. And he won't be expensive or prohibitive.
Teams have gotten to the World Series with less than Mike Bourn at CF in the past.
