Michael Bourn, Not Interested

Not a fan of the Mets acquiring Bourn.

Some obvious signs that it's a bad idea, the Mets would have to backload the contract and fight to keep their first round pick in this year's draft.

Bourn is currently 30 years old and if John Heyman's facts are even remotely close (5 yrs/$13 M per year), the last two years of the deal would most likely be another salary dump.

Also, Bourn's positives are strictly speed, he doesn't hit for power, his RBI numbers tell me he's more of a complimentary player than a guy who's going to save your outfield, and "what-do-ya-know" he bats left-handed.

I say hold on to the draft pick, you've already convinced your fan base that 2013 is a pipe dream.
