I'm not sure what we're really arguing about anymore except the fact that Abreu has been a stud this season and I guess it's hard for those who haven't owned him to see. Because those who don't own him see he was a 3rd round pick and is putting up about 3rd round pick numbers. It's just really special that he's done it all quietly in only a couple months and been such a huge freaking fantasy force lately.
I doubt there are many Abreu owners who would say he's been a stud this season. Most of us are sighing in relief that we finally got some serious payback from a top draft choice. It might be correct to say he's compiled decent 5-cat numbers quietly
, because a few weeks ago they were anything but decent. I'll never refer to a season as studly where the guy had me ripping my hair out for 10 weeks.
To be fair, though -- Abreu's numbers may be more
valuable compiling them the way he did. The first couple months he rode my bench, while I plugged someone in who had a chance to provide some value. Doing all his damage at once has increased my overall totals for his position. At the cost of clogging up my roster for a while, though.
