Another writer circles the Astros like a vulture, looking for a gamey dinner

This time it's MASN.com's Phil Wood, who thinks that Michael Bourn would look good in whatever color the Nationals wear. But he sees a challenge:

Here's the rub: Bourn is a Houston native, and is one of Houston general manager Ed Wade's all-time favorite players. One of Wede's priorities upon taking the Astros' job was getting Bourn from his former employer, the Phillies. Desperate whatever struggles the Astros may encounter, it's believed that Bourn might be the last player he's willing to deal. The wild card might be that Bourn is represented by Scott Boras, who has a fairly solid relationship with the Nationals.
