St. Paul Pioneer Press: Tigers Close To Abreu Deal
I can't determine who actually wrote this, but it is a published report in the St. Paul Pioneer Press. It's called Don't Print That and has a smattering of rumors from various sports.
The baseball notes:
"A little birdie says the first-place Detroit Tigers are close to a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies for right fielder Bobby Abreu. The Indians, in town to play the Twins, are talking about trading Aaron Boone to the Los Angeles Dodgers."
We've all heard of the Tigers' interest in Abreu, so we'll have to see what comes of that rumor. As far as Aaron Boone, I can't fathom why the Dodgers would want to actually give up a player or cash to acquire the worst third baseman in baseball. I think Bill Mueller on crutches could outhit Boone.
