Why wouldn't more teams be in pursuit of him? I mean other than the ones which are clearly set at 1b. What is he going to cost? Around 40 million for 4 years?

I could see Abreu getting 60-90M for 4-6 yrs since he should get a fair amount more than Puig, Cespedes and Miguel gonzalez (not officially signed). It might sound like we are really down on him but he has also put up otherworldly numbers in pretty much every major int'l competition including those with MLB'ers.

I read somewhere he was only going to get a bit more than Cespedes, but with all the success recent defectors are having, I don't see why not he couldn't somewhere around that.
