What do you guys think of Abreu??? I got him late in my league and though he was a steal, but now I'm thinking about shopping him around.

I would hold on to him. Most people don't realize just what a valuable roto player Abreu is and you're unlikely to get fair value, especially if he slipped in your draft. Not many players can produce .300, 20 HR, 20 SB, 100 R, and 100 RBI.

now lets see, Bobby Abreu, a.k.a. "the poor man's Carlos Beltran" is arguably the 3rd best (behind Soriano and Beltran) when it comes to providing value in all five of the main offensive cats...
that combined with the fact that people sometimes dont realize his value makes him the only guy whos in almost every one of my teams ;-)

even if you do decide to trade him you prolly won't get enough value :-t ... so i say stay put ;-D
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Why in the world would you want to trade him for Shawn Green? Insane you are.

Abreu went well before both Giles and Green in my league.

Do you play in a roto league? Abreu has much less value in H2H leagues.

I play in a Head to Head league on cbs sportsline and Abreu finished as the 8th best outfielder last year. I think that's pretty good.
