Reaction to Indians signing Michael Bourn

By Ron Ledgard Published: February 12, 2013

Michael Bourn brings great speed, great glove and grand strikeout totals to the top of the Indians lineup.

His WAR rating the past four years puts him the category of Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton.

There is also no doubt that he is the everyday center fielder, with some analytics putting him near the top in baseball, bumping Michael Brantley and Drew Stubbs to other positions or the bench. Or possibility into trade bait.

Here is reaction to Michael Bourn signing with the Indians around the Internet.

Here is Keith Law of ESPN, who calls it an odd fit.

Here is Fangraphs, that calls it interesting because of having 3 center fielders now.

Here is Tim Browns of Yahoo! Sports.

Here is Jonah Keri of Grantland.

More from Fangraphs, on what it means for the Indians DH role.
