Even More On Bobby Abreu

New, comments

I've been thinking more and more about Bobby Abreu this weekend. He's a great hitter and his career slash line of .300/.405/.498, really makes you wonder why he hasn't been a superstar for the past decade. One thing that concerns me a little about Abreu is his home/road splits, especially since he joined the Yankees.

Career OPS split

Home .941

Away .864

He's clearly better at home, but his road numbers overall are very good. However, over the past two full seasons with the Yankees, he's been a great hitter at home and an average hitter away from the more cozy Yankee Stadium.

In 2008, the numbers seem to come closer together, but it's clear that Abreu's power number are enjoying Yankee Stadium. A legit concern?
