Rumor: Abreu to Boston for Trot Nixon...

Postby quitesanemax » Fri Jul 14, 2006 8:57 pm

Okay, I've heard the rumor in the past and it has never happened. But they were mentioning it on talk radio here in RI, and I was just wondering what people think this would do for Abreu's fantasy value if it were to happen...

the rumor is that if boston acquires abreu, they are demanded the phils take trot's contract back...theres not way the phils take just trot in an abreu deal...also, you should ask this in the trade rumor section in the leftovers...

The Phils would want low salary prospects, not expensive old guys.

Yeah, you don't trade good young pitching unless you're desperate. The Sox ain't desperate.

I agree that Abreu for Nixon straight up makes no sense. If the Phils deal Abreu they're tossing in the towel and will building for the future. How in the world does Nixon help with that?

obviously its not a straight up deal :-? :-? :-?

im sure the red sox would be throwing in prospects, i.e. manny delcarmen or craig hansen.

Nixon is a FA and it would clear Abreu's enormous contract off the books for the Phillies, that is where it would help, by taking away the $12 mill or whatever is owed to Abreu.
