Bourns career OBP is .339 and he is gonna get more money upton. Id rather the braves sign Upton than Bourn.
I love how everyone assumes that you like a player that means the person thinks he will be all-world... lol .350 hitter 40 home runs...
I'm not delusional. I just think he could be a good fit for this team.
He would be a good fit on almost any team as long as you dont expect him to be an MVP. He plays good defense, has Pop and Speed. He has a decent career OBP and is still pretty young. Id be very very happy if he winds up on the Braves next year
Nobody said he would be an MVP, but hes going to get alot more money than hes worth. For 4/40 hes not a bad signing. But he probably wants around 6/75.
At least from the Giants perspective I dont think hes worth it, because of the park. Hes probably a .240, 20 hr, 75 rbi, .320 ob% type guy at AT&T. The speed and D make him an above average player, I just wouldnt want to tie alot of money up in him.
