Jose Abreu injures eye after deflecting a ball off his mitt

Recommended Posts

Is Jose really going to be the starter at 1st this year? Yonder is the better fielder of the two, and I have to imagine playing him at 1st will bolster his trade value. Abreu is such a butcher out there that he is injuring himself from deflections.... It is time to shift him to DH. It is long past that time, actually.

Boy the training staff really is having a tough year. I can't believe the injuries.

Geez, I know people think I care about unimportant things sometimes but geez ... who cares?

Our team is going to stink. Let Abreu play first this season. There's absolutely no reason to play Yonder there. Accidents happen. He got hurt. Big deal. He'll be back.

You get mad at the idea of an opener but you don't mind an awful fielding 1st baseman when we have a superior fielder on the team? I thought you were anti tank?

I am anti tank, ron883, but as you know I love Abreu. Because of my love of certain players, I don't get mad regarding their deficiencies too often. I do despise the opener. It sickens me. But I love Abreu and Avi. I don't mind seeing Avi/Abreu butcher some plays since we are tanking/gonna finish last, etc. I am anti tank but I "accept the tank" is happening. (I need to look up and see how Avi is faring this preseason).

Get ready for some Greg anger: Avi!! Avi!! Avi!!

The guy is a hard worker and just hit a bomb. Makes absolutely no sense to give up on Avi when he's blocking nobody. Thanks Mr. Hahn.

I think this is the first time we’ve ever agreed in Soxtalk history. No need to give him up if we weren’t filling his void with someone more established.

For those missing Avi, sounds like he is missing us too... or at least baseballs.

Only the White Sox can downgrade defensively when they rid themselves of Avi. impressive.

Is Jay worse than Avi? I didn't think that as the case.

No but Jay is worse than Engel and Palka is worse than Avi, so the whole OF gets a downgrade.

Got it now. I think the increased offense of Jay and Jimenez will be worth this downgrade.  The defense will go down but overall WAR will go up.

Well yeah, Jiminez alone will be an improvement over whatever it was we put out in LF last year (Seriously this is amazing, leftfield by PAs, Delmonico - 268, Leury 103, Tilson 99, Palka 96, LaMarre 50, Thompson 17)

Welcome to rebuilding.  I also think Jay will out produce what Engel did last year.
