He also has zero defensive value. At best he's average at 1B but he already looked unathletic at 26. Gourriel looked awesome. Nice smooth swing.
The Taiwan bracket is interesting so far with the Dutch knocking off Korea and Taiwan winning its first two games. I wish I had tickets but I decided too late to go.
Granted, I only saw 1 or 2 of Abreu's ABs, but I agree kab...he looked like he'd get eaten up by MLB pitchers.
