Abreu Trade Rumor Update

Postby Snakes Gould » Sat Feb 04, 2006 9:05 am

White Sox general manager Ken Williams shot down Internet reports that the team was on the verge of trading pitcher Jose Contreras and right fielder Jermaine Dye to Philadelphia for All-Star right fielder Bobby Abreu and pitching prospect Gavin Floyd.

Williams, through a team spokesman, said there is nothing to the report, adding he hadn't spoken to the Phillies in eight or nine days and that no proposal was tendered.

That would be something if that deal was to actaully happen.

Being Venezuelan I would tell you that Ozzie will try to get as many fellow country players as possible. Freddy Garcia is an example, who not only Venezuelan, but also married to Ozzie's daughter (or Ozzie's son married to his daugther, something like that).

Maybe the Abreu trade is not true, but someday you will see something similar happening, like Johan Santana, Carlos Guillen or Willie Taveras playing for the White Sox.

I would do that trade in a heartbeat as a Sox manager. Floydd has great stuff and just needs to develop a nice curve before being dominant, Abreu is 30/30 and speaks for himself. Contreras is good, but at times inconsistent, and the Sox staff is already fantastic and all the would lose is Contrras who would be replaced by either Mccarthy or Floyd himself.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

As a follow-up, none of the rumored Abreu trades were ever close to happening. They were only ever that- rumors. Abreu has a no-trade clause, and he was never even approached by the Phillies to waive it.

the rumor was not as far-fetched as you may think considering the phils are going to make their push AFTER this season....the wish-list of gillick is to get rid of burrell and abreu this season or after this season because the phils would have millions coming off the payroll. bell, wolf, lieberthal is close to 20 million by themselves, and with abreu and burrell's salaries, thats close to 40-45 million off the payroll...talk about spending money....

I dont see Philly doing that nevertheless, trading their top pitching prospect :-/
