Former #Astros CF Michael Bourn still lives in his hometown.He owns 3 apartment complexes in Houston w/ about 60 tenants & is concerned w/ how they’re doing during this pandemic. So he’s helping them in a big way. Michael waived their rent in April & expects to do it again in May pic.twitter.com/38Y6Kb701m

No listen I get it. Former Phillie is a bit of a stretch seeing as Bourn only played two years in Philly and that was many many moons ago. But a feel good story is a feel good story. So deal with it. Guy is doing the right thing and I don’t want to hear the pocket watchers saying “are we supposed to be proud of this? He’s a millionaire this is what he is supposed to be doing!” No it isn’t but that’s another discussion.
So thank you for your great work Michael and most importantly thank you for going to Houston in the Brad Lidge trade. We couldn’t have won the 08 World Series without Bourn.
