I think you can pretty easily see the difference between the two teams, no? And why it would make more sense for both Houston and Abreu to be more likely to get a deal done than Boston and Abreu?The Sox are not in a contending window, now? Is that the consensus? Two wins away from the WS a few years ago and would have been good last year save for injuries seems to be the argument of the optimists…now things can change quickly and they aren’t in the same class as the Astros, but what is the expectation for the 23 Sox? Expecting to contend? Hoping?
The Sox can be competitive with the right moves, but the Astros just won the World Series with an absolutely loaded roster. If you were Abreu, which team would you want to join? And in Houston you get to play the position you've played your entire career instead of just being the primary DH.
