As the calendar changes from 2012 to 2013, there remains one premier free agent left in Major League Baseball, and that is outfielder Michael Bourn. I am sure the former Atlanta Brave did not picture his first free-agency experience going the way it has.
With the Braves seemingly moving on with the addition of B.J. Upton and a number of other teams making moves to fill their hole at center field, options have become limited. It has actually been pretty shocking to see how quiet the rumors have been around Bourn.
About a week ago, Jim Bowden of ESPN tweeted that Michael Bourn's market consists of Cleveland, Seattle, Miami, Philadelphia, Texas and the New York Mets. Since that tweet, Cleveland signed Nick Swisher, which pretty much eliminates them from this conversation.
The following slides will show the odds as I see them for each team to sign Michael Bourn.
