Bobby Abreu

Postby DaShiz23 » Fri Apr 17, 2009 10:18 pm

What are your feelings for this guy? He has been extremely consistent the last several years, and is off to a nice start this year.

.333 2R 0HR 6RBI 4SB

Not off the chart numbers, but the avg. and SBs are very nice. Do you gents see the SBs keeps on coming? How about the power numbers? Rise or fall with Vlad's apparent DL stint?
I was unsure about this upcoming season for him, being that he moved out of the Yankees' line-up and the fact that he isn't quite a youngster anymore.
Does this solid start validate his consistency, or is it flukish, and not something that can be expected all year long?
I, personally, love this guy's potential as a 3rd OFer this season. :-) ;-D

He is still consistent, and a very balanced hitter. He probably won't get as many run producing opportunities as he did with the Yankees, maybe this will cause him to run more?? :-?

Either way, he will continue to be consistent and hasn't shown the signs of slowing down yet

He reminds me of VLAD a lot, we all keep saying/thinking that this is his year to drop off. But he manages to bounce back. I think he will manage a .302 AVG,/ 21 HR 110 RBI and 14 SB

That sounds about right to me, I think he will nab a few more bags though - 20 SB

20 bags - highly likely. 20 HR - No way in Heaven! Those days are wayyy gone and he doesn't have Yankees stadium short RF porch anymore! Oh ya, let's not forget the Arod factor...Abreu used to hit in front of Arod so you can only imagine what kind of pitches he used to get in that position!

Maybe a few more SB because the Angels like to run.

Swap the HR with SB and I agree.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I was gonna say....with 4 SBs so far, AND Vlad down for a bit, I see Abreu runnin a bit more.
Great/Solid player to have as your 3rd OFer.
