Abreu is a Yankee
Well, it's offical, the Yanks acquired Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle for 4 minor league players.
I'm not sure how I feel about Abreu just yet...he tends to be hot or cold, no middle ground. A lot of people(including my dad) believe this could be just the thing to light a fire in him. We'll see. For what we're giving up, I don't see how we could NOT make this happen, so in that aspect I'm pretty pleased.

We needed another pitcher and there wasn't much out there to get without giving the future away, so I'm more curious to see how Lidle does.
Supposedly Abreu loves NYC and already keeps an apartment here so maybe he will do better.
I don't know a whole lot about Lidle, but from what I hear he'll be a decent 5th starter, so I'm not too concerned about him. He'll give us some innings and keep us in the game, which is really all he needs to do. Anything beyond that would be an added bonus. It'll be interesting to see.
