Most in the industry expect new Phillies GM Pat Gillick to do something big; right fielder Bobby Abreu would be a perfect trade addition for any team that fails to sign free agent Brian Giles. The Cubs could use the left-handed Abreu to hit between righties Derrek Lee and Aramis Ramirez. The Mariners also want to add left-handed power. The Astros — Abreu's original team — would be another possible partner if they could somehow find a way to absorb the $30 million he is owed over the next two seasons. The Dodgers also would make sense.

He puts up great stats and apparently someone thinks he plays good defense because I believe he won a gold glove (this is sarcastic!)....anyway, if the Phillies are playing to win instead of 'rebuilding', then dealing Abreu now doesn't make sense. Besides, if they keep Abreu, his trade value may be higher closer to the trade deadline when teams are desparate!
