I'm amazed that Bourn, one of the best CFs in baseball, remains unsigned.

His game is almost 100% speed, though, and he's now 30 years old with eight seasons of MLB service time under his belt. Every team in baseball is afraid of signing him to a long-term deal, which is what he and his ruthless agent Scott Boras have been demanding all offseason. Every team with CF issues went elsewhere, some for different reasons, but others plainly because Bourn was asking for too much money and too many years.

He's an astonishing base-stealer and can be a real pest when he's on base or because of his excellent defense in the outfield, but he strikes out a lot and many fairly reliable projections indicate that he's probably ready to begin declining almost any minute now.

It's interesting that the New York Mets are at least looking at him closely and reportedly recently offered three years, but even there they're concerned about losing a draft pick (another strike against him in all of these negotiations).

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

It's the draft pick that is keeping him from signing. That and Scott Boras.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Just to torture WWF... From almost five years ago, a few weeks before the MLB 2008 Draft, and it was an extremely common prognostication among MLB analysts and observers:



"Crystal ball: Projecting the first 10 picks

By Jonathan Mayo / MLB.com | 05/14/08 10:00 AM ET

The conversation usually goes something like this:

Me: I'm working on my first projection of the first 10 picks.
Scout X: (Laughter). Good luck with that.

Yet here we are, once again in mid-May trying, somewhat foolishly, to piece together our first projection of the spring. It's only the top 10 picks and it will be updated several times before the First-Year Player Draft commences on June 5, yet there is this strong desire to nail it down right now. And that, of course, is nearly impossible.

In reality, the biggest hope is to get most of the names right. The order will come later. It's like that game Mastermind. First, you make sure you have the right colors, then you put them in the correct sequence. If people can look back at this first crack at projecting the top of the first round and see that most of the names actually did go in the top 10 of the actual draft, I'll pat myself on the back. Without further ado, here goes nothing.

1. Tampa Bay Rays: Buster Posey, C, Florida State

It appears the Rays have narrowed it to five names for the top pick (there's no David Price this year): Posey, the FSU backstop who's had a tremendous year with the bat to move himself into consideration; Georgia high school shortstop Tim Beckham, who's got tools galore and can stay at short; Pedro Alvarez, the Vanderbilt third baseman who's among the most polished hitters in the Draft; Brian Matusz, the lefty ace for the University of San Diego; and Southern California high school catcher Kyle Skipworth.

I believe Skipworth is on the outside looking in and I keep coming back to thinking (based on no real inside information) that it'll be between Posey and Beckham. This week, I'll go with what's been the hottest rumor as the Rays get a good hitter who can catch."

Further on down:

"5. San Francisco Giants: Tim Beckham, SS, Griffin HS, Griffin, Ga.

The Giants would probably love for Posey to be around, but that seems highly unlikely at this point." [emphasis added by me]

Bwahahahahahaha....

But, at least you probably just raped Kansas City's GM Dayton Moore this offseason. You guys excel at ripping off other teams via trades.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

How's Tim Beckham doing these days? Since he was a high shcooler he's gotta still be really young, like 22-23 young.

I really wish St. Pete would just FUCK OFF and let the Rays actually move to TAMPA.
