Really nice job by Rube of rounding out the roster this year. Gurney groper Chad Gaudin was released almost immediately. Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez can’t throw the ball. And now Bobby Abreu has been told that he’ll be left off the Opening Day roster.

    This is the kind of move that will come back to bite them in the ass..

      Releasing a 40 year old that can’t play the anywhere in the field is going to bite them in the ass?

      This team will have plenty of problems this year. Not having Bobby Abreu as their 5th OF won’t be one of them.

        Why do they insist on carrying a player like this every year only to have the plan go bust in Rube’s face like he is sucking off Monty in the owner’s box?

        Stairs, Thome, Mayberry….

    Luckily for Bobbo there were 6 teams somehow worse than us last season. He’ll be a Mariner, Cub or Astro next week. Next year he could be a Phillie.

    He turned in to an old obese slob

    “He looks like an AL bench player”. Did anyone else expect him to look like anything but an AL bench player? It was either that or a bad AL bench player. This couldn’t have been anything more than a thinly veiled retirement party for Bobby. Watch him hang in the minors until the beginning of the season and show up to a game for his curtain call. Mama knows…

      I’m pretty sure Amaro is the only one.

      Well, me, too. Because I didn’t even expect him to look like an AL bench player.

    At least, unlike Thome II, he didn’t get any MLB at-bats. On the other hand, at least Bobby would have been interesting to watch, as oppose to 300 more spectacularly desultory ABs from John Mayberry, Jr.

    Been feeling this season could go 2 ways;
    1. Fuck it, let’s win it all a la the Indians of “Major League.”
    2. 15 games out by Memorial Day followed by a fire sale.

    I think option 1 is… not an option.
