Don't drop him. He's a career .300 hitter, and has a career OBP of over .400. He hits in the best lineup in baseball, (at least it should be the best in baseball), and though his power has been lacking the past 2 years, he still should score tons of runs and knock in plenty of runs, not to mention the 20 + SB's he's capable of. Maybe this will be his worst season in a long time, but I'm confident he'll be much better than he has so far.
I think you should save a bench spot for him for now. If you trade him you wont get much value right now. Come on, think! Were talking about Bobby Abreu, the man is a stud, he will come out of the funk, the season is early. Plus I think I remember him being a slow starter and pickin it up in June and July. HEY, its still may.

The same stud who hit a whopping 6 HRs in the second half of the 2005 season after shattering the All-Star Home Run Derby record with 41? I had him that year and probably I soured on him in that lackluster second half. Then just 15 HRs last year. This year I'm desperate for HRs.
Maybe someone will swap me Vernon Wells for Abreu. Oh yeah, and Hunter Pence is available on the WW...
Abreu give you so much more than just HR. He will probably finish with a .300 avg, .400 OBP, 10 to 15 HR with 25 or more steals. He will probably be move back to the 3rd spot once he is out of the funk. Once he did he will scores tons of runs and drive in more than 100 Rbis. At worst I think he is going to end out scoring 100 runs and drive in close to 100 Rbis. I don't think you can just drop him. You could have probably trade him.
