Is Jermaine Dye capable of a comeback year?

Postby mmdmaznn » Thu Apr 01, 2004 10:53 pm

I've got B. Williams, M. Byrd and M. Cameron as back up outfielders, but I know that I definitely need more power in the OF since my starters are Damon, H.Matsui and Ichiro. Does anyone think it's worth dropping one of my back-ups, taking a chance on Dye? What should I do???

It is definatly possible but he will need to stay healthy which from recent past is not very likely. If you need power check and see if Burnitz is still available the guy is an absolute power house and at Coors 40+ is a definate posibility.

Dye reported to camp in great shape and has had a decent spring. My OF is weak as well, so I grabbed him. If he doesnt perform I will release him.

Drop Byrd and pick up Dye. You already have 2 of's who are lead off men, Ichiro and Damon, you don't need 3 lead off hitters in your OF.

Thanks for the perspectives, guys...I totally appreciate it! Dye burned me last year and I've been hesitant to take a chance this year.

I would not DROP Byrd- try and trade him. Hell I have seen him listed as high as $25 in some magzines!! I would not drop him for DYE for sure. I know you need power but I would not just drop Marlon Byrd. I would trade Damon for someone more respectable before I did that!!

could he have a bounce back season? sure, anything is technically possible. but he is still in a bad offensive line up in a pitchers ball park.
