I, too, saw the Angels/Indians game two weeks ago and he looked good to me. He'll draw some walks and as someone else said...this is all because Grady Sizemore has osteoperosis or something. We should benefit from this. Trevor Crowe...Jesus, I am sick of hearing the name. Sometimes, you just have to believe the Dolans, Ant, Shap, Manny, and crew know more than any of us.
So do they know more than us so they were going to make the trade (as long as LAAAAA ate enough salary) or do they know more than us because they did not make the trade?
To say anyone is flipping back and forth on the cheapness take is about as stupid as it gets. What is being said is, they have told us they have $X. If we took on $3M of Abreu, right now and since it would be for the full season, we are using up a decent chunk of $X. So this could be the one bullet a team with limited financial resources has to fire...and you want it to be on a guy at that age whose most redeeming qualities are centered around taking walks.
By the way, did the Angels cut this must get guy yet?
