    Rumor Mill: Abreu to Mets? Milledge involved?
    By Eric Simon Filed under: Rumor Mill
    Posted on Thu Jul 20, 2006 at 05:39:09 PM EST

    Rumors persist that the Mets and Phillies are working on a deal to bring OBP machine Bobby Abreu to Shea, with the Mets reportedly considering including Lastings Milledge in a deal.

    Presumably, the Mets realize that Milledge's peak value is as a centerfielder, though he has no hope of filling that role at Shea until around 2012 when Beltran's contract expires.

    Abreu, on the other hand, profiles more as a corner outfielder and is regularly one of the best on-base guys in the league. He has ranked in the top eight each of the past four seasons and the top 10 in walks every season since 1998. He is 8th on the active list in OBP and 35th all-time. He has been in the top five in power/speed number (a Baseball Reference metric) every year since 1999. Just go look at his numbers.

    Abreu has fallen out of favor in Philadelphia for his perceived indifference on the field, and he has seen a big power dropoff since his performance in the homerun derby last season, but he is still an elite player. It's still just a rumor right now, but the interested in Abreu among other MLB teams appears to be minimal, so the Mets may be Philly's best hope at moving him and his big money ($15 million in 2007, $16 million team option in 2008), though the word is that Abreu won't waive his no-trade clause unless the receiving team exercises his 2008 option.

    If the Phils pick up 30% of the contract it wouldn't be that bad a deal.

    Abreu has 20+ SB and a .420 OBP.

    He is scared of the wall, but so what. He is a great player.

    I'd rather trade for Abreu than Zito who we could just sign after thi syear, BTW this deal reeks of a smokescreen to lower Zito's pricetag.

    If Abreu contributes to a WS and produces for two more years for the Mets then no, not really.

    Ahhh I see so if the A's see they are close to trading Milledge they will lower the asking price so they can get Zito and the A's get Milledge?

    Probably.

    Vernon Wells just ends the Yankee game with a walkoff sot.

    How do you know Milledge is all that good? His value is so high. I'm not crazy about him... Im not talking about his production this year, he is still young, but theres something about the way he plays with his mechanics etc.. That Im not crazy about.

    Thats what this Abreu hype is all about... To lower Beanes demands or to interest him in dealing Zito/

    He won a gold glove....

    Seriously though, it isn't an AWFUL move for the Mets, BUT! Its a pretty ****ty one... Millege, once he matures as a human being, will be an impact player. He can play LF and still tighten up your defense.

    Philly, OTOH, needs to get themselves some (starting) pitchers. A deal for Millege would be retarded.

    im sure the marlins would be willing to listen... very sure.

    he's just having a rough year, but he's playing w/ a horrible team, and probably poorly motivated, put him on a good team, and I bet he does great.

    I doubt there's any truth to this. The guy who broke this "rumor" is Jayson Stark, who has the least credibility of all the ESPN MLB reporters.

    Oh he is great.. And hes on a bad team.. But he is still not what the Mets fans that call WFAN 24/7 say he is....

    He also tends to struggle half way through a season.

    IMO he would be a great asset in the postseason. and a 15-20 win pitcher on this team. Good enough for me!
