Let Bobby Walk.
So, you want to play every day? Good luck, buddy.
In a recent radio interview, Bobby Abreu said he is still an everyday player in the major leagues, and if the Angels don't see it that way (and they don't, between Mike Trout, Mark Trumbo and Kendrys Morales, there isn't going to be anywhere for him to play), they should just trade him somewhere where he can play every day.
Here is the problem with that, Mr. Abreu. You are a liability in the field, so you can't really go to the NL. Now you look at the teams in the AL who would need DH's. MAYBE Texas, although they need somewhere for their constantly injured players to ease their way back into the lineup. Otherwise, its a lot of teams who already have a DH and Outfielders more capable than you are.
At this point, you are looking to go to a Kansas City, Houston or Pittsburgh where you are going to lose, A LOT. You are telling me that being an everyday player on a 60 win team is better than being an important role player on a World Series contender?
Have fun in Houston buddy, see you next year.
