About time they did something. They picked up a pretty decent player in Bourn. Although he is no Beltran or Pence, he should still be able to help that team.

And for those out there thinking the Astros were asking for an arm and a leg... all they got was Jordan Schafer, Brett Oberholtzer, Paul Clemens, and Juan Abreu. Nothing to cry about.

Braves made move to show fans hope but bourn sucks. 4 players for a guy with a sub .300 average and has no power. He's been better this year but pretty sure last year he was below .270

Braves needed a leadoff hitter and got one without giving up any of their top prospects, Bourn doesn't suck.

Great pickup and no untouchables were lost.

Bourn is a good leadoff guy, especially now that he DOES hit around .300. He used to be a low-average guy, but he definitely stepped his game up. This was a pretty good deal for the Braves being that none of the prospects were within the top 50 in the game.

I fully do not believe in collusion now. And all I said was something was fishy, I never said for sure there was collusion. Misc likes to blow my posts way out of proportion.

FOR THE LAST TIME I DID NOT START THE COLLUSION TALKS. THEY WERE STARTED ON THE ASTROS MESSAGE BOARD ON MLB.COM.

Why is that so hard to comprehend. I only jumped on that boat after I thought Wade wanted Delgado and Arodys for Bourn. Kinda hard not to jump on that boat after you see something like that.

By the way STA, I posted in another thread long before that one that Bourn was my top choice for the Braves. I wasnt happy you got Pence, sure. But Bourn is a better fit for us than Pence was so Im very happy we got Bourn instead of Pence.

I completely agree that Bourn is the better fit than Pence or Beltran wouldve been.

Gives you guys speed, a leadoff hitter, and a GG CF.

Just heard on MLB Network that the Braves as a team have 42 SB and Borun alone has 39

Thank you Houston...it's about time we got a decent deal done. I was afraid we were going to have to settle for an Omar Infante or Coco Crisp. Have fun with Jordan Schafer and his hooker herpes...sad to see Abreu go though, he's the only guy I'm disappointed we gave up and he may turn out to be a good major league reliever.

Hopefully once Jim Crane settles in, he'll do some housecleaning. Goodbye Ed Wade.

Abreu is actually pretty good but Im stunned we got Bourn without at least including one of Minor or Delgado.

I've got to think that a team that is 37 games out of .500 has bigger needs to fill than a potential relief pitcher. If that was the case we could have just kept Jose Valverde. Here's to not giving a sh!t about this team for the next 5 years.
