Phillies looking at Bourn

Victorino signed with the Red Sox, he is out of the question

I think acquiring Dexter Fowler or Bourn would be a mistake. If Victorino gets $13 million a year, what is Bourn going to want? There is no way he is worth over $10 million a year. A guy that strikes out a ton and has little to no power. He is great on the base paths but that is about it. I really don't want them to get Bourn. Like I said before, Amaro needs to make a move soon before we end up like last year with little depth.

You may think Bourn may not be worth more than $10 million but I am certain, knowing his agent Boras, he will not sign with any team for less than $15 million a year (for at least 5 years). I don't agree he is worth that much but I'm sure he'll be getting that.

Have been reading some rumors today and last night. Apparently a Cliff Lee for Justin Upton trade was shot down by both sides. Another rumor I read this morning on the ESPN Insider was a possible trade for Rangers 3B Michael Young. That would fix our need at third and give us a hell of a #2 hitter.
