• What Abreu Wants, And What Mets Need, A Match?

    [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…

      I wonder if K-Rod’s disaster last night has any residual effect on his market especially with the Mets.

      Church did not hate playing in New York. He actually loved it. I think Fatcessa was saying this, but then took it back. One reporter actually said he knew for a fact how much Church loved NY and the Mets, because they talked about it a lot. Not with a tape-recorder and pad out, but a normal conversation. Don’t remember who it was…

      I’m a Met fan. No way we need Abreu. We need a LFer, and a right-handed one at that. I also doubt Minaya would give him 3 years, he seems to be over giving aging injury-prone players long contracts.

      Supposedly, the Mets are not going to break the bank on an offer for A-Rod..

      GPR.22, IIRC, MF got his feedback from Ed Coleman, on Church. Wouldn’t Eddie know the real deal?

      Yikes – I guess that was a wishful thinking slip…
