Where in the world is Bobby Abreu?

As the Phillies continue to tread water in the National League wild-card race, it is worth noting that Bobby Abreu has yet not returned from the July 12 All-Star game in Detroit.

Yes, he's in right field for the Phillies, but he has been invisible at the plate since hitting 4,000 dingers (actually 41) in the Home Run Derby last month. The beef against Abreu has always been that he does not hit in the clutch.

Well, he was clutch in winning the Home Run Derby, but in the end those numbers don't matter at all.

What matters is the .233 batting average, no homers and four RBI since the all-star break when the team needs him most.

No wonder the Phillies aren't making a move in the standings.
