    Yes, but his .773 OPS against righties is far less than Eaton's .847, yet you wouldn't bat Eaton behind Abreu to protect him. The "great" Pedro Alvarez hit 24 homers against righties with a...

    Figure there will be about 100 plate appearances for Abreau with:

    1) a runner in scoring position;
    2) at least one out; and
    3) a righty on the mound.

    I see no one on our roster that...

    We have no one to intimidate righties into not pitching around Abreau.

    Time to choke on the donkey, and pick up Ethier in exchange for Avi and Engel. At least HE can hit righties.

    The great Jason Heyward is projected (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/h/heywaja01.shtml) to hit .277 with 13 HRs, 15 steals and 55 RBIs. Do you really want to go 7 years, $150 million...

    Only the Twinkies hit righties worse than the Sox in 2015. I want no one who does not hit righties far better than the guy he'd be replacing.
