This is from SoSH. There's a blurb from Cameron's fangraphs chat today on Bradley and Abreu.
Jordan : White Sox fans seem to think they could get JBJ+ top prospects, or Ben+ top prospects for Abreu, I contend that between age, $$$ and the glut of similar free agents means Abreu isnít worth JBJ or Ben or top prospects, whatís your thoughts on his value?
Dave Cameron: Bradley is worth so much more than Abreu, itís not even close.
Ryan: Abreu opted into arb so he is going to make 17.9M this year according to MLBTR. Even worse for Boston.
Dave Cameron: Iíll take the under on him getting $18M, but yeah, good point.
Dave Cameron: He got $11M as an arb-1 last year, so after a good year, heís probably over $16M this year, and maybe $20M next year.
Dave Cameron: So now heís more like 2/$35M, maybe 2/$40M?
Dave Cameron: Youíd take him at those prices, but if you give up something really valuable to get it, itís a mistake.
striker: RedSox get Abreu
Giants get JBJ
WhiteSox get Groome and Arroyo
Dave Cameron: Dombrowski gets insta-fired.
Dave Cameron: Also, the world in which the Giants can turn Christian Arroyo into Jackie Bradley Jr must be a fun one.
Brian: Is JBJ and Michael Chavis or Sam Travis enough, too little or too much for Jose Abreu?
Dave Cameron: I canít believe how many JBJ+ for Abreu suggestions are in the queue.
Dave Cameron: Bradley is better than Abreu, cheaper than Abreu, and under team control for longer than Abreu. Also, thereís a billion first baseman on the market this winter, and only one good CF."
