Yanks to pick up Abreu's option

From Ed Price:

The Yankees have picked up the $16 million option for 2008 on right fielder Bobby Abreu. A person informed of the decision, who asked not to be named since the Yankees had not yet made an announcement, confirmed the move today. (Ledger on the Yankees)
This is a good move. If you asked me in May if I wanted Abreu's option picked up, I'd obviously say "no." However, he had a more "Abreu-like" second half and finished with respectable numbers (.283, 16 HR, 101 RBI). If he was consistent all year, he would've hit over .300.

No need to CREATE holes to fill.
Healed from the ribcage injury, I believe Bobby will swing the bat in a more Abreu-esque manner in 2008. I AM concerned how he will fare without A-Rod hitting behind him, but we have a lot of hitting talent. I would not be surprised with .300, 100 RBI, 100 BB, 100 runs. Would LOVE to see 30 HR, but that may be days gone by. I say we'll be pleasantly surprised by Bobby.
