White Sox-Bobby Abreu Rumor

Yesterday ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick wrote that the White Sox "floated the possibility of a one-year $8MM contract" for Bobby Abreu this week, and that flotation caused talks to stall.  One obstacle in the Sox signing Abreu is Jermaine Dye and the $11.5MM he has coming.  It makes little sense for a team to give up prospects for Dye when they could just sign Abreu or Adam Dunn for a similar amount.

Today Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times confirmed that no official offer was made to Abreu, and heard from a Sox source who called the rumor "BS" and suggested Abreu’s agent Peter Greenberg "is trying to drum up interest for his player."
