Michael Bourn to Cleveland 4yrs 48 Million

http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...s_mlb&c_id=mlb

If this is all it'd have cost to keep Bourn I don't know why the hell ATL didn't do it. I was assuming that he must have been asking something ridiculous (well it's hard to say what's ridiculous in MLB contracts) or the Braves wouldn't have given Upton that contract. As a Braves fan this is really irksome. No way in hell you take Upton over Bourn.

I mean, he is already 30 and maybe has plateaued...

I was against a long-term deal for that reason, but 4 years is reasonable. I don't know. A head scratcher. Happy he isn't on a rival, though.

Nice deal for Cleveland, he's a very good player. Surprising they got him for less than they paid Swisher.
