MLB Trade Rumors: Astros' Michael Bourn Might Get Moved

With Hunter Pence dispatched by the Astros, is center fielder Michael Bourn next?

First, Jerry Crasnick:

#Astros efforts to move Michael Bourn are picking up steam, source says. Appears more likely he'll move by deadline. #tradesless than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Do you know anyone who could use a Gold Glove-quality center fielder with great wheels and a fine on-base percentage?

Bingo:

 

The Reds reportedly are interested in Bourn, too ... though it's hard to figure what they would do with Drew Stubbs, if Bourn came aboard. Granted, he strikes out too often and doesn't get on base quite as often as Bourn. But he's younger, and too good to just get benched.

The most interesting thing about all of this is that Michael Bourn is a better player than Hunter Pence.
