    Tentative Deal.... rumor....

    Oh, Yankees MAY get Abreu......
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    On the Yankees broadcast, they've yet to confirm but noted that Abreu was pulled from the Phillies lineup.

    It very well may happen. But it hasn't. And they are still talking about what players they get back. So the headline should say "tentative".

    Olney's tentative deal also says Lydle is going with him.

    The thread title should say "tentative" or something similar.

    Thanks Matt

    Assuming they are picking up his 18 million option for next year, the Yankees are paying a whole lot for a suddenly average outfielder and an average starter.

    Yankees have tentative deal for Abreu, Lidle

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ESPN.com news services

    The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees have a tentative deal to send Phillies right fiedler Bobby Abreu and pitcher Cory Lidle to New York ESPN.com's Jayson Stark and ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reported Sunday.

    Stark reported the Yankees will send 18-year-old minor-league shrotstop C.J. Henry -- their No. 1 pick in 2005 -- and 27-year-old left-handed reliever Matt Smith. The Phillies will also pick one other minor-leauge player from an agreed-upon list, while the Yankees will take on responsibility for Abreu and Lidle's contracts. Abreu is owed $15 million for 2007 alone.

    Abreu is hitting .277 with 8 home runs and 65 RBI in 99 games. He has a career batting average of .301 with 198 home runs and 841 RBI over 10 seasons.

    Lidle, a right-hander, is 8-7 with a 4.74 ERA in 21 starts in 2006. In eight seasons he has a career mark of 78-69 with a 4.54 ERA.

    Abreu was in the Phillies' starting lineup Sunday but was pulled for Shane Victorino 10 minutes before their game with the Florida Marlins

    Oooh even worse. He's due 15 million in 2007 and the option was for 18 million in 2008. Rumor was he wanted it picked up to waive no-trade clause. I know they have a ton of money, but wow......

    That's not much return for Abreu and Lidle. C.J. Henry has not had a very good start to his professional career. I'd be interested to hear if he's better than his numbers from our more minor league savvy people.

    Philly must have been content to get rid of Abreu's contract. I can't say I blame them.

    Well, the Phillies gain from this by dumping the bad contract. They just saved 24 million dollars.
