    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
