WHOA! WHOA! WHOA! Abreu is NOT a leadoff hitter. Abreu is a bonafide 3-hole hitter. Don't let a bad two months diminish Abreu's unparalleled production for the past 5-6 seasons. Take alook at his numbers post trade last season (9 months ago) and tell me he is a leadoff hitter. As for Abreu being "way ove the hill", you are absolutely insane. What is this based on? His power numbers being down or the 2 bad months this season? Is BErkman WAY OVER THE HILL, is Konerko WAY OVER THE HILL, is Helton WAY OVER THE HILL? Please elaborate on this comment.


I think you could have found a better example than Helton, whose glory days are obviously way behind him.

Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

the only way i can see this trade go through is if the yankees pick up some of abreu's contract.. i think the trades a big risk for the white sox especially since dye is a blackhorse mvp canidate.. you have to keep in mind tho dye s numbers have not been great so far

Not only because Abreu is a good friend of Guillen's -- which worked out well when right-hander Freddy Garcia came over -- but also because the Sox believe Abreu is a slow starter and his best baseball this season is ahead of him.

The organization also reportedly isn't too thrilled with comments from Dye in which he came off as uncaring about where he plays.

''I've been around long enough to know that it's just a business,'' Dye told the Sun-Times this week.

''You're paid to work for a team for whatever period of time, give 100 percent to that club, and if you get dealt away, give 100 percent to the next club.''


These comments coupled with the Yanks need for a RH power bat makes it seem like a formula for a trade.

not to dispute the rumor, just wondering why in the world the sox would want to pick up abreu... :-?


Exactly. Even as a Yankee fan, I can't imagine why the Sox would agree to do this.

In my previous post about tex, I was talking about the Dodgers. That seems to be the best fit. LAD has so many prospects and TEX has so many needs, they are bound to find something that works for both teams.

Also, I could see Texas making a play for Dukes if he's truly on the market for a RP. What kind of RP would they be looking for?

Pretty interesting article where Goldman argues that the Yanks should trade A-Rod (most likely to the Dodgers). I don't really see how it would help them for this year, but its an interesting idea when thinking about the long-term
