Can We Move On From The Bobby Abreu Experiment Now?

As we get back to business as usual after spending the last few days pondering the different things the Mets could have done before the non-waiver deadline, I wanted to discuss two moves the Mets could have done to improve the team that didn’t require any of our top prospects or vast sums of money.

Bobby Abreu should have a busy spring

Tempe, Ariz. It might be unrealistic for the Angels to get Bobby Abreu the playing time he desires this season, but the veteran outfielder should get more than his fill of plate appearances this spring.
