Bourn could be on Nats' radar for center
ATLANTA -- It has been reported for weeks that the Nationals are looking for a center fielder, and Braves outfielder Michael Bourn is a name that could be on the radar.

Bourn, who was hitting .307 entering Saturday's action, is a free agent after this season and might be a possible target for the Nationals.

Asked if he would consider playing for the Nationals, Bourn said, "Well, that's kind of hard to say right now. I'm playing the season with the Atlanta Braves. I'm enjoying my time here. When that time comes, I'll entertain those kind of questions."

But Bourn is aware who the Nationals are. He feels they have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball.

"They are good. They have some real good pitching," Bourn said. "They made some key acquisitions, and they have Gio [Gonzalez] over there now. They bring a good starter every night."
