Do you guys see Abreu putting up similar numbers this year?

Postby Music2004Man » Thu Jan 06, 2005 1:36 pm

Abreu seemed to make a big jump last year and I'm wondering if this is by far a career year or if you think he can repeat the numbers. I generally think that he was put into a wonderful situation hitting in that bandbox of a park in Philly with some protection around him in the form of Thome. Can he repeat that year or will he fall off horribly?

I don't see how he could repeat those numbers but I do think he'll do .300 and 30/30

WELL SAID.... although I'm only projecting 25 - 30 HRs......and MAybe 32 SB......300 avg and 100rbi seem like as close a lock as anything in baseball....Even with those numbers his value is huge!!!!!!!!!!! And as a bonus, his upside is what we saw last year. ;-D

I actually think he could do better. I expect Thome, Rollins, Burrell, and Utley could really mesh together.

A lock for 300-30-30 with an potential upside to match last year's numbers.

He should be great again this year, with similar numbers. Like others have said, .300/30/30 is a veritable lock.

I didnt even realize how great his OBP was. Has 100+ walks in 6 straight seasons with an OBP of .428 last season with a career average of .412 8-o

Which makes him just as good a value pick as Carlos Beltran in Fantasy BB.
