Here is Ken Rosenthal's latest on the subject
I posted the Ken Rosenthal article because what is posted on Metsblog is totally inaccurate.
3:10 pm: The Cubs, Rangers, Indians and Mariners have more interest in Bourn than is being reported (Rosenthal, FOX Sports).
Ken Rosenthal did not say that these clubs have more interest, he was merely speculating.
Yea, he specifically said might. Sounds like Rosenthal has absolutely no real information either:
"Yet, the Mets’ path to Bourn still might not be clear."
"Other clubs might have greater interest in Bourn than is being reported currently"
"These four clubs, in particular, could be fits"
Hairston in Wrigley Field with the wind blowing out was a brilliant move by Theo.
He has the savvy to pull something big off under the radar.
He so wants to win a WS in Chicago like he did in Boston to break the curse.
He can pay the $ for Bourn because Soriano's $ come off in a couple of years.
I think not. While Sandy was dragging out the Wright signing and the Dickey trade market, Minn. traded two CF's with speed. I happen to like Denard Span and his price and Ben Revere's youth & price. The Mets matched up well with Minn. as they were searching for young pitching which the Mets had depth with. Heck they even signed Mike Pelfrey. I think the Nats & the Phillies got it right.
Sandy waited and now he will have to overpay for Bourn, who outside of his SB, CF, & leadoff is not worth his price.His signing is not even guaranteed at this late date.
While everyone thinks Sandy did a great job with the Dickey trade & I agree, he didn't come out of the deal with a ML OF which Toronto has in excess.
I match you in the Sandy critic arena.
