Besides, if they keep Abreu, his trade value may be higher closer to the trade deadline when teams are desparate!


Abreu with the RF fence in Yankee Stadium :-L !



Yeah, but then again, he had the LF, CF, and RF fences in Philly.

There are no steroids in baseball. Just players Chuck Norris has breathed on.

It is shocking but I actually agree with wrveres. I have no clue why they would want to trade him. The Mets are gonna be a powerhouse in the N.L. East this year and you would think that the Phillies would try to keep one of there best bats if they want to have any chance to compete.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

A lineup that doesn't need bolstering. His defensive numbers are pathetic. I'd be interested in this trade ONLY as a salary dump.

Been hearing two rumors about him
1. Bobby Abreu for Erik Bedard and Jay Gibbons
and
2. Bobby Abreu and Mike Lieberthal for Carl Pavano, Jorge Posada, and Eric Duncan


i've heard (from no where reliable)...

3. Jason Marquis and Anthony Reyes for Bobby Abreu and cash (and in some versions an unknown 3rd team is involved)

Yanks getting Abreu?

Postby SonsofSlam04 » Tue Nov 29, 2005 9:56 pm

Just what the Yankees need - more hitting.. what a joke!!!
Typical Yankees buying another ALL STAR and giving their fans a false sense of hope that they want to build a winner - when in reality George just cares about filling seats!!!

I've been hearing that one as well. I don't know how much sense it makes for the Cards, though. They add payroll and lose 40% of their rotation. Even if they then go and get Burnett, their payroll is significantly higher and they're still short a 5th starter (though, I suppose Wainwright or Thompson could slip in there in a pinch).

The thought of Eck, Abreu, Pujols, Rolen, Edmonds makes me smile, though.

Dude, get a clue. The only reason the Yankees would make this deal is to dump bloated contracts from Posada and Pavano. Abreu fills none of the Yankees needs. He is a good player, but the move would be a salary dump for the Yankees.

Buying another all-star? Right. The fact that their payroll would dramatically decrease as a result of this trade is irrelavent...right? :-t

Perhaps you should get a clue BUDDY
"I said getting Abreu is just what the Yankees need" - Like you said he fills none of their needs... He doesnt play CF, he cant setup for Mariano, he cant lead off.
As for the Yankees constantly buying ALL STARS .. what about this is untrue? ... Randy Johnson, Mike Mussina, Carl Pavano, Jared Wright, Jason Giambi, Alex Rodriguez, Gary Sheffield, H Matsui... its true they collect ALL STARS...
As for caring more about filling seats than building a winner, its something you Yankee fans need to face a real possibility. How else do you explain just buying ALL STARS with a complete disregard for team chemistry? No one can be that dumb, not even George!
