Astros on verge of trading Bourn

Rosenthal just announced the Braves are getting Michael Bourn for "four minor leaguers," as yet unnamed. Watch this space.

Names coming out, none of The Four Untouchables:
Jordan Schafer, CF
Brett Oberholtzer, LHP
Juan Abreu, RHP
Paul Clemens, RHP

We'll have full reaction once church is over, but right now it looks as though the edge goes to the Braves, who got what they needed without giving up any of their top four prospects.

Braves have 9 starters for 5 spots and we didnt get one. Burn the Witches.

Better than keeping him I guess. Oberholtzer sounds like a nice pickup.

Another horrible trade. A year from now we will look back at Wades trades and for Oswalt Berkman Pence and Bourn we will have Brett Wallace. We already have players like the ones we acquired in the minor leagues. Crane went along with these deals so he is as big an idiot as Wade. No way to but a good spin on the Bourne trade.
