Great deal for them if true.
Definately wouldve rather had Bourn at 4/48 than Pagan at 4/40.
Player A - .281 .333 .424 .757 / 124 of 157 (79%)
Player B - .272 .339 .365 .704 / 276 of 340 (81%)
If you sign player B, it'll cost you a first round pick.
Our 1st rounder is what, the 26th overall pick? Not a whole ton of franchise changing stars left at 26, if you play the odds. imo Bourn is a significantly better baseball player than Angel Pagan. Obviously we couldnt have known, or risked waiting out Bourn to get him that cheap, but it just annoys me.
