    Headline on Braves-Astros deal, half-hour after story posted, says "Braves trade for CF Michael Bourne." Bad, because name is wrong on one of the bigger names in the trade deadline. I guess the Sunday morning shift isn't the prized one ...

    Sounds like there's an issue with Bourne's Identity.

    One of the country's best baseball writers, I guy I like and really respect, had it Bourne in multiple places this morning, too.

    I gotta give Bob Bourne some love. Sorry, Kansas City Scouts flashback, even though he never played for them.

    Now that he's in Atlanta, Bourne has supremacy.

    (Double sorry)

    I wonder,when Atlanta made their offer, if they gave Houston a Bourne Ultimatum.

    (Triple Sorry)

    If he somehow vaults the Braves to the top of the NL East, I can almost guarantee a two-page SI spread entitled "Bourn to be Wild."

    If it isn't "Tragedy strikes Phillies."

    Or perhaps A Star is Bourn.
