Roll Those Dyce!

Michael Baron of MetsBlog, writes, "The Chicago White Sox have bought out the 2010 option for 36 year old outfielder Jermaine Dye, making him a free agent."
Baron continues, "The option called for $12 million for 2010, but the White Sox opted to buy him out for $950,000."

Although "Dye finished the year hitting .250 with 27 home runs and 81 RBI for the Sox," one can't help but wonder if we're looking at a Gary Sheffield Jr. in 2010 or a legitamate, albeit skill-declining, veteran left fielder for the Mets next season.

Granted $12 million is a bit much for ANY team (even those cross town Champs) to sign the aging outfielder but for the right price and for one year, I can't say I wouldn't mind seeing those left field fans replace their Sheff Hats with Tye-Dye shirts.

We looking at a 2010 Moises Alou?

Nice start... But let's hold off on it for now.

And wait for him to be picked up by...? Crawford, Bay and company are swell options but Bay and Holliday will return to their former teams... the only question is Crawford... Hmm...

Good luck, Omar!
