    If Bourn does sign a one year deal, it isn't going to be until close to spring training. Boras is going to hold him out as long as possible, waiting for someone to throw a big multi-year deal at him. So we might get Bourn on a one year deal, but if we do we're going to have to be patient, and perhaps miss out on some of our other targets. With the Rangers being out of the bidding for Greinke, I expect Hamilton back in Texas, and Bourn to land in Seattle.

    Bourn makes zero sense for Seattle. I'm not saying that it won't happen, but it really shouldn't. Two teams off the radar that would be better fits are the Orioles (send Adam Jones to left) and the Rays (who really need to put some bullets back in the gun).

    I agree, I don't think he makes any sense for Seattle either. Hopefully for their sake it's a move they don't make.
