According to an article in the Daily News, the Yankees are mulling a trade for the Phillies' Bobby Abreu. I'm not sure whether or not Abreu would be able to fill Sheffield’s angry, bat-waggling shoes--maybe so, but this is the part that makes me nervous:
“The Yankees have also gotten a strong recommendation on Abreu from his former manager Larry Bowa, who believes the 32-year-old right fielder would thrive in a situation where he doesn't have to be the top gun.”
So, Larry, you’re saying that Abreu is perfect for the Yankees because… he doesn’t like pressure? Right. That's going to end well.
