Fri Jan 2619:34Abreu sticks around as White Sox rebuild
CHICAGO (AP) — The numbers are just part of the picture. Jose Abreu's value to the Chicago White Sox extends far beyond the field.So while the rebuilding project continues on the South Side, Abreu remains with the only major league team he has ever known. The slugging first baseman means so much to Chicago in so many ways that it's tough to find a trade that is worth it for the White Sox."There was clearly speculation that he could conceivably have been moved this past offseason," general manager Rick Hahn said Friday on the first day of the team's annual fan convention. "Part of the reason that he wasn't is that we do put a large value on what he does in the clubhouse, how he represents himself and the organization, what he does for our young players. The way he goes about his business is the epitome of what we expect from a White Sox player."That probably leads to us valuing him more highly than other organizations who haven't had the pleasure of having him, which makes it that muc...

He was in the top 10 in the American League in virtually every meaningful offensive category, and is the first player in major league history to begin his career with four or more consecutive seasons of 25-plus home runs and 100-plus RBIs.
