Abreu Deal, No Biggie
I have to say it, of course. The Phllies will be no bettor or worse off with Bobby Abreu gone for the Yankees. That’s how bad things have become. The Fightins are a .500 team at best, and it is readilly apparent to me that the changes they have made this past week were also changes that had to happen.
I see no point in the team trying to get better to make a run at the wildcard. They need to get rid of their high-valued, long-term contracts to build for the future. Moves such as the Abreu deal helped the team do just that. Pat the Bat, i’m looking in your general direction next. I fear your time will not be ending in this city. I fear you will have another year without post-season, but at least this year you can watch Bobby on TV come October.
He’ll be playing on a professional baseball team now.
