How long can the Michael Bourn saga drag on? Can we reach February with this? If the following tweet from Mike Puma of the New York Post is accurate, then we just might see February.

I’m not a player agent or a general manager, but between the Mets purported unwillingness to relinquish a first round pick for Bourn and Puma’s report that they’re not going five years… I’d say we don’t have a match here.
