Friday's Contracts

The New York Yankees surprised absolutely no-one, exercising outfielder Bobby Abreu's $16M option for 2008. There was no way the Yankees would lose their third and fourth hitter in one offseason.

The Toronto Blue Jays resigned veteran outfielder Matt Stairs to a 2-year, $3.5M contract. Very good price, as Matt had more than 20HR's in the 2007 season. He is in his upper-30's though, so a two-year deal might be a little iffy.

The Boston Red Sox exercised both Tim Wakefield and Julian Tavarez's options, Wakefield at $4M and Julian's at $3.85M. Tavarez was quite surprised as he thought for sure he wasn't returning with the team after Boston left him off the World Series roster.
