The Value of Bobby Abreu

According to Fangraphs, he's already earned more than double his 5 million 2009 salary, at 10.5 million. He hasn't hit too many homers, but with a .396 OBP, 19 steals, and 58 RBI, he's been a joy to watch. His value goes beyond the stats though, as Torii Hunter gives him some credit:

Having Bobby Abreu here has been big for me. I'm more disciplined at the plate than I've ever been, and I can thank Bobby for that. He's a master up there, and he's a great guy to play with, because he's so willing to share his knowledge. He's also a really funny guy, helping keep things loose.


With 33 walks so far, Torii has the best walk rate of his career, and getting better pitches through improved patience sure hasn't hurt his power or batting average.

Usually when you think of high OBP base-stealing players, whippy little guys like Rickey or Figgins come to mind. Abreu looks like Bartolo Colon compared to those guys- I guess experience and guile still count for something!

Abreu at his peak was the complete offensive player. As he aged, I would have guessed that he turned into a .240 hitter with 100 walks and 30 homers - a Jay Buhner/Jeromy Burnitz type season. I never would have guessed we'd see Tim Raines type numbers.

 
At 8:12 PM, Blogger Chone Smith said...

Just though I'd see when the last time a hitter had a season like this. I'm looking for:

1) a .300 or better average
2) at least 80 walks
3) at least 80 RBI
4) at least 30 steals
5) less than 15 homers

It's been done 17 times in history, but only once since 1924. Tommy Herr, 1985.

Some patients using Lamisil have developed serious liver damage which has led them to needing liver transplants. Lamisil is not harmful to unborn children but it can pass through breast milk so nursing mothers should avoid using this medication.

http://bit.ly/11E6sdj First, insurance policies for your pet differ in the amount they cover. There are some animal breeds that would require expensive medical treatments. If your loved one has something wrong with them a trip to the veterinarian can get very expensive.
