The guy is a pro that you can pencil in the lineup every day and know that at the end of the season the production will be there.
A bit confused by the conclusion. You had an off year last year and a worse start this year. Wouldn't the natural conclusion be that regression may be rearing its head on a first baseman who is aging? Of course, it is possible last year was the one off and he finishes this season well but we're entering 1.5 years of regressive results. If it continues, the trend is clear.

He is on pace for 41 home runs and 137 RBI and that is with the awful April he had. His OBP is down from his averages but he is still a very productive player for the Sox and clearly a leader in the clubhouse that the younger players look up to.

I get it but a decreasing OBP, WRC+, and an increasing k-rate show there's a chance this may or may not be the last year of good production.

I guess my point is I would be very careful extending him at this point. His saving grace is that he has a below league average babip of .268 and that seems likely to correct. Which means his OBP, WRC+, etc. Will improve as well

With the drafting of Vaughn and a possible ETA of 2021, Id offer Abreu a 2-year extension. Have him be the primary 1B in 2020, and then share 1B and DH with Vaughn in 2021.

I think this is the right call, too. Maybe make him a player coach at some point.
