2003: .300 avg, 20 hr, 101 rbi, 99 runs, 22 steals
2002: .308 avg, 20 hr, 85 rbi, 102 runs, 31 steals
Seems pretty darn close to his 2002 numbers to me. I think once again, Abreu will put up solid numbers. Don't get me wrong, there is room to improve on his last 2 seasons, but personally, I wouldn't classify them as "horrible".
I'm with you on this one Madison.
However, for whatever reason, I would say that Abreu has, once again, manager to avoid the popular fantasy radar. How many years, in a row, can a player manage to sleep?
Abreu was a 4th round pick, in my league, for 2003, the same round that Burrell and Hinske were taken!
