Attention Yankee Fans: Brian Cashman is Smarter than You

According to Buster Olney's report, it looks as though Bobby Abreu might be willing to take a one year deal.  Suffice to say that the contract that Abreu is looking for will be worth far less than the $16 million that the Yankees would have been required to pay him, had he accepted arbitration.  Cash took a lot of heat for failing to offer arb to the right fielder, but in hindsight this may have been the most important move of the offseason.  If Bobby Abreu was on the books for $16 million in '09, do the Yankees sign Mark Teixeira?
