Angels re-sign Bobby Abreu

The Angels and Bobby Abreu have agreed to a two year deal worth 19 million dollars. The Angels signed Abreu at bargain rate last season, so it makes sense that they awarded him after the strong season he put together in Anaheim.

"I really feel happy here with Los Angeles," Abreu said in a telephone interview from Las Vegas. "I really enjoy to play for them, and I think when they started with the conversation for the contract and we didn't have any problems back and forth, it was a nice negotiation. It was no problem to stay and come back with the Angels."

Abreu did more than just produce with the bat, stepping up and become a leader and mentor for some of the young international players.
