As it stands now the Bucs lineup actually has some decent middle of the order depth but desperately lacks a traditional leadoff hitter. Not to play Keeping Up With The Jones' but the Reds definitively addressed this issue in the trade for Choo, albeit by sacrificing defense. Could the Bucs fill the leadoff spot and improve their defense? Michael Bourn is sitting out there and his value is potentially depressed due to teams filling CF via trades this offseason. His value also takes a hit when you consider signing him would cost a 1st round draft pick. So my proposal is that the Bucs leverage their improved farm system and sign Bourn via a sign and trade, leveraging a team with a lower 1st round pick. For instance, we could work with an agreement with the A's (they seem likely to do something like this) in which they sign Bourn, forfeit their draft pick (26th overall) and we provide them compensation in the form of one of our many low ball pitchers with some high upside (or develop a package that includes Snyder since we would be the most impacted by acquiring Bourn). Thus we keep our more valuable 1st round choices and significantly strengthen our lineup. Thoughts on the idea?
