[Bobby] Abreu has said several times that he would like to remain with the Yankees, having enjoyed his 2-1/2-year stint in pinstripes. But the 34-year-old also is seeking at least a three year-contract, leading most baseball insiders to believe the outfielder will wind up in a new uniform this winter.
Reportedly, Ryan Church hated playing in New York and with the Mets. I could see the Mets letting Church go, or, trading him. And, it would not shock me to see the Mets make a run at Manny Ramirez on the free agent market. However, should the Mets not get Manny, I would bet that they would be willing to consider Abreu on a three-year contract.
So, maybe Abreu does stay in New York…playing in Queens?
How about the Yankees? No way should the Yankees give him a three-year deal. Thanks for the memories Bobby. Don’t let the door hit you in the fanny on the way out…pretend it’s a wall if that allows you to run away from it faster…
