Abreu in line for real estate disappointment too

By

Barring a Mets deal, Bobby Abreu’s days as New York resident are numbered. To that end, Abreu is looking to sell his two-bedroom apartment in One Beacon Court, and Luxist takes a tour of the property. Abreu is asking $7.9 million, but as will be the case when he finally signs with a new team, he won’t get his asking price for the apartment either. No matter though; he’ll turn a profit on his original $3.5-million investment. (Hat tip to Shysterball.)

    GO GRASS!!!

    Omar hasn’t brought in a Latin hitter yet this winter, and he traded Chavez and A. Reyes, so he’s got a net loss of 2. Bobby + Manny evens this out to zero, and then the offseason is an indisputable success.

    I’ll go out on a limb and guess that Bobby gets 2/$15 from somebody, Burrell came at a good price after all.

  8. Mike says:

    If we DID trade Nady, do you think we would even get in on Bobby at this point for like a 1 yr deal?

  9. Bo says:

    If Milton Bradley and Ibanez got 10 mil a yr, Bobby will get the same.

    The Burrell deal won’t be any factor even if the teams will try to make it one.
