• Me, Abreu, & Mitchell: Paranoia, Or, The Destroyer?

    Posted by on October 30th, 2007 · Comments (2)

    Bobby Abreu is usually good for 60-70 extra base hits per season – just check the numbers. But, from 2001 to 2004, he hit more homers, among those extra base hits, than before and after that time.

    To be honest, there’s a part of me that worries about this spike on Bobby’s bubble-gum card, just a little bit – and the upcoming Mitchell Report.

    Maybe it’s nothing. But, it could be something that the Yankees, perhaps, should factor in when thinking about his option for 2008. If they suspect this could turn into something ugly for Abreu next season, maybe they should start thinking about whether or not they want to deal with it?

      What’s with the namby-pamby wording?

      “could be”
      “Maybe it’s nothing”

      Do you think the Yankees should pick up their option on Abreu or not?

      I think they should activate the option.

      Is Abreu the only player you have concerns with?

      I heard his option needs to be acted on within 5 days of the World Series ending but I can’t vouch for that.

      I’ve already covered that Rich:


      I think you have to pick up the option now – unless, you know something about him that’s not public now.

      ~~~What’s with the namby-pamby wording?~~~

      I wanted to stress that I’m not accusing Abreu of anything – just suggesting that the possibility exists based on the numbers.
