Abreu and Lidle Traded to Yanks

Yep just as everyone knew would happen.  I expect Lidle to take Sidney Ponson's spot.  Abreu will probably bat 5th till everyone(Matsui and Sheffield) returns.

The Yanks gave up former first round pick C.J. Henry and 27-year-old Matt Smith. Update [2006-7-30 16:39:42 by rg scorch]: The Yankees also gave up catcher Jesus Sanchez and Carlos Monasterios, a right-handed pitcher. Overall, I think this is a good trade for the Yankees.
