Abreu Signing Not Good for Yanks

We all knew Bobby Abreu would not be a Yankee. In fact the Yankees had no interest in pursuing him. But with Abreu signing with the Angels, that is probably the worst place Abreu can sign.

The reason why? The Yankees always have a tough time vs the Angels. Let us just look at some of the stats from 2005-2008.

In 2005, in Yankee Stadium the season series ended in a tie at 3-3. In 2006 at Yankee Stadium, the season series ended at 2-2. In 2007 at the Stadium, the season series ended at 2-4 with the Yankees on the short end. Last year, in the Bronx the season series was tied at 2-2.

In Anaheim in those same years the Yankees were 1-3, 2-4, 1-2, and 1-5 respectively.

So as you can see the Yankees can't even win a series vs the Angels and in Anaheim the Yankees struggle greatly.

The last thing they need is Bobby Abreu adding to the Angels' success against the Yankees.
