The Bourn Identity?

I would take him if the price was right.

The Bourn Identity?

You stole my joke. It makes me sad.

Anyway, his OBP is higher than Stubbs', consistently. And he has good speed. So he could be a fit in the leadoff position. If he was cheap, I wouldn't be against acquiring him I guess.

The guy hasn't played a game in LF since the '07 season with the Phils. Not saying he couldn't, but he'd be kind of a waste in anywhere other than CF with all that speed and below-average arm.

I'd love to have Bourn. I've heard that the asking price for him isn't too high. He may not have played much LF, but he is a premier defender in CF, so I'm sure he'd do really well in left as well. He'd be a great guy to have at the top of the lineup

why can't he play cf and stubbs lf?
