why was Abreu a 3rd round or later draft pick last yr then? If he is the model of consistancy and we know what we are getting from him, then why was last yr the only time he finished in the top 10?
Please - understand I targeted Abreu in my drafts last yr - I loved him in the 3rd rd - and yes, one of the things I really liked about him was his consistancy. The problem with this theory however is that he played well above his average last yr - his '04 season is the definition of a career yr. Between the '03 season and the '04 season he posted 10 more HRs, and 18 more SBs. He was on almost all my teams because I was targeting him lst yr - but there wasnt one single projection out there that had him increasing his HR and SB totals to that degree.
