White Sox Make Offer To Bobby Abreu

[NY Daily News]

Bobby Abreu was offered a one-year deal worth $8 million from the White Sox, the Daily News has learned. Abreu made $16 million as the Bombers' starting right fielder last season. He anticipated being able to sign a three-year deal as a free agent this offseason but has mostly received only one-year offers.

[Update by The Cheat, 02/03/09 2:51 PM CST]: Scott Gregor uses a little common sense, and a "White Sox source," to deny the rumor. Meanwhile, Jerry Crasnik seems to have more detail.

Negotiations between the Chicago White Sox and free-agent outfielder Bobby Abreu stalled early this week after the team floated the possibility of a one-year, $8 million contract, said a baseball source.

The source disputed a New York Daily News report that said the White Sox had made Abreu an $8 million offer but confirmed that the team has been in contact with Abreu's agent, Peter Greenberg, in an effort to gauge the outfielder's asking price.

And Kenny Williams is still blaming bloggers for the economic meltdown, world hunger and global warming.

"He is a great player and can help any club," said Williams via e-mail to MLB.com, not confirming or denying the Abreu offer, staying consistent with his offseason policy. "But I just have stopped responding to every blogger's post."
