No. 7 MLB star you forgot was an LA Angel: Bobby Abreu

Bobby Abreu was on the LA Angels for three seasons, and part of a fourth. Unfortunately, only one was unforgettable. It was his first season with this team, where he hit .293/.390/.435 (.825 OPS) and drove in 103 runs.

Abreu then had a poor remainder of his tenure with the Halos, and continued those rough times on the next two teams he played for afterwards (Dodgers and Mets).

Abreu was another former Angel on the Hall of Fame ballot this year, and unlike Lincecum and Teixeira will stay on the ballot. Abreu was a two-time All-Star before he played for Anaheim. He's remembered as a Phillie, and for good reason.

He was better on defense, and had five of his six 30-stolen base seasons there. His sixth did come with the Angels, but it was in that one great year he had. Overall as an Angel, he hit .267/.364/.412 (0.776 OPS). He was much better with the Phillies and Yankees.

The former Silver Slugger and Gold Glover is hardly ever remembered for his play with the Angels.
