My wife called me and excitedly told me the news. The Braves had made a trade for Jason Bourne. This was amazing news. The intangibles he brings to the team off the field would make up for any bad publicity that may come with him, not to mention visa issues just trying to get him across the border or through airport security.
Here, Michael Bourn and Hunter Pence react to hearing they are no longer Astros.
Yeah, I know, Michael Bourn is a gold glove all star center fielder who steals a lot of bases.
Reminds me of a trade we made a couple of years back. We acquired a gold glove winning all star center fielder who stole a lot of bases from Pittsburgh. His name is Nate McLouth. Michael Bourn's job is to do what Nate McLouth still has not done in three years.
I hope this one turns out differently.
Good luck Jordan, I'll miss you..... Welcome Michael Bourn. no pressure buddy.
