Bobby Abreu was a story during Spring Training. Though he couldn't field or hit, hiis slash line was outrageous, and the Phillies were just the sort of pretty bad-looking team with numerous injuries on which he could find a bench spot. Plus, he had already played for them from 1998-2006 and was/is 40 years old.
Abreu didn't make the club, but he will be making an appearance on a Major League roster this season - and may even face his two-time former NL East team. Say hello to the newest New York Met, Bobby Abreu

What are the Mets doing? Well, they're having a horrible year. Probably not as horrible as the Phillies' year will be, but certainly nothing impressive. They'll make pick-ups like this all season long, when necessary.
