Dude, seriously, you need to stop posting when you've come back from the bar so drunk you're ready to pass out because you just aren't making any sense. I don't think anyone is going to think you dislike Ed Wade. If anything you sound like you're ready to bear Ed Wade's love child.
At any rate like I said Ed Wade's record with trades while he was the Phillies GM was extremely poor. It seems foolish to think that will suddenly change just because he's the GM of a new club. Also the reason the Phillies traded Bourn is they, and most people familiar with him at the time, only saw Bourn as a 4th OF. Basically I'm saying given those facts, the deck is stacked against Bourn becoming the superstar you seem to think he is. Might he surprise everyone an perform far better then expected? Anything is possible, but it's not the most likely scenario.
