Just because a veteran doesn't have a job in April doesn't mean he can't contribute more than what you currently have. My guess is that Dye won't be unemployed for much longer, and there is a good chance he will be better than the flack we are currently running out there for 2/3 of our outfield.
Not at the cost he is demanding. Pedro chose where he wanted to go, but there were no rumors of him to the Yankees or even Red Sox that I remember. I just don't think teams feel Dye will hold up or not be a defensive liability.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
