Bobby Abreu Trade Is 'Dead Or On Hold'

Hold on there, Ohio. Don't go crazy with the Bobby Abreu custom jerseys just yet. I mean, if you already had a Winston Abreu jersey, you can probably dig it out of the closet, but then you're probably Winston Abreu, and you don't really care about the Indians that much anymore. From Angels beat writer Mike DiGiovanna:

If a trade were imminent, you'd expect Abreu to be sitting out, lest he get hit in the noggin with a baseball or something like that. But if Abreu's in the lineup, you'd expect that the trade can't be that close.

Of course, this is spring training, and lineups for these games are released really, really early. The game isn't scheduled to start for another four-and-a-half hours. A lot could happen between now and then.

Like a three-way deal that's expanded to include Ervin Santana and the Red Sox? Well, I just made that up, but you could repeat the rumor and just say that it came "according to a source." That's how the Internet works and we're better for it.
