More tomorrow about tonight’s excellent win â€” and man, did Alex crush that ball in the 9th or what? â€” but for now, let’s look at the much-maligned Bobby Abreu. When last we saw SeÃ±or Abreu, he was struggling mightily. And then the calendar flipped from May to June. This month, Abreu has come to the plate 24 times. He’s been on base 15 times. He’s 9 for 18 which, for the mathematically challenged among us, is .500. His four doubles gives him a slugging percentage of .722.
So about that Jermaine Dye-for-Bobby Abreu rumor? Yeah, let’s not do that, ok?
