NORCROSS, GA, February 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Rumors have been circulating through the Twitterverse and blogosphere about a comment Atlanta Braves GM Frank Wren said during an interview. Wren responded to a question about the possibility of Michael Bourn returning to the team by expressing that the door was not closed on that possibility.
Express Oil Change & Service Center, a Roswell car repair company, believes that the rumors surrounding this comment are reading too much into Wren's remark. Like all general managers, Wren is a smart man who would not outright refuse to take on a talented player like Bourn. However, given that the Braves now have B.J. Upton in center, it would be unlikely that they would seek out Bourn for that position.
The Braves signed Upton to a five year, $75.25 million contract during the 2012-2013 offseason. During the same offseason, Bourn decided to become a free agent, rejecting the Braves' $13.3 million qualifying offer. Roswell auto repair center Express Oil Change & Service Center believes that Bourn is likely to find another team that is willing to offer his desired longer term, higher pay contract, meaning he would be unlikely to recant his dismissal of the Braves' offer.
"It just wouldn't make sense for Bourn to reject the offer if he didn't believe he could get better," says John Pearson, Director of Marketing at Express Oil Change & Service Center. "And it wouldn't be easy to balance two amazing centers like Bourn and Upton without placing one of them out of center field."
