His next contract is gonna be monsterous. Bourn will play better D, steal more bags and get on base more for less money.
I like Bourn a lot, but the Yankees are already subtracting some 40 homeruns from their lineup by losing Swisher, and A-Rod for much of the season. They need Granderson's big bat.
