Angels - Signed Abreu

Los Angeheim Angels - Reportedly have signed RF Bobby Abreu to a 2-year contract.

This just broke and there’s nothing about contract terms yet.  To pull a complete figure out of thin air, I’d guess that it’s in the $8-$10 million per range.  I expect this to be a reasonable signing, especially if Abreu is DHing as soon as possible.  Abreu’s settled in the 115 OPS+ range and even if he declines a bit, he should probably still be a league-average player, assuming that he’s not left in the field.  Depending on the contract, Abreu’s likely a good enough deal that the Angels won’t suffer any payroll inflexibility as a result.

The third option, unfortunately, is that he beats up a pregnant woman on camera.

"I'd guess that it's in the $8-$10 million per range."

Good guess. $9M per for both years, plus a $9M option with a $1M buyout for 2012.

In his defense, cameras are everywhere these days. You just can't beat up pregnant women in private anymore.

What really is the reality in here? There are many reports that say that and then there will be published that there it is not. Anyway, for an issue like this there will always be different side of the stories, isn't it? Just give them family business. A dedicated family business can be either a worthy pursuit, or it can be a despicable failure. As a business owner, you could end up giving an important job to your nephew that you knew darn good and well is under qualified to run a mop. That said, sometimes a family business can pan out. You still have to make good decisions and remember full well that there may be unintended consequences. (As the head of the company, YOU could be the jerk that didn't let someone have time with their wife and kids, SCROOGE.) So, if you're thinking of making your business into a family business by employing relatives for debt relief, take care.

BillyS, Wouldn't that be better on a Dodgers thread?

Or a spam thread?
