What are people expecting this year from Jermaine Dye? I had him in 2006 when he hit over .300 with 44 HRs. I know that he is 34 years old this year, but I'm thinking he will rebound significantly from last year. I'm hoping to a .275 avg. with 30 HRs and around 90 RBIs. Any one have any thoughts?

I think you can expect last year's #s, but a slightly higher average.

I'm projecting a bounceback -- take the avg. of '07 and '06

He had a monster 2nd half last year

I agree. (Post all-star game, 16 HR, .298 BA) I don't think 35 HR / 110 RBI are a reach for 08', plus a return to a .280-ish BA. Dye is one of my favorite mid-round undervalued players. Not many guys in that range that have 35-40 HR upside.

He's not as good as '06, but he's better than '07. For where he's going, production somewhere between those two years is a good value.

I think somewhere between 2006 and 2007 is about right. I grabbed him as my last OF slot last night. ESPN is projecting .275, 34, 101. I would take that in a heartbeat. :-)

Personally I would expect closer to 07's numbers than '06's, but I still expect him to improve somewhat, along with the rest of those White Sox hitters.

Jim Thome led the team last year with a .275 average... :-{
