Why all the Dye hatin'??

Postby svai » Fri Apr 16, 2004 12:41 am

I don't understand why everyone is so down on Dye this year. this guy was 30, 100+ only what, 3 years ago? Why does no one think he's incapable of repeating those numbers just because of a few injury ridden seasons. everyone's saying griffey will have huge numbers if he stays healthy, I don't understand why this is any different, and he's much less of an injury risk that junior.

I think he means that people have been saying he wont keep this good hitting up, that he will fall back to how he's been hitting the past couple of seasons. I personally think he is gonna have a good year.

I don't see any Dye hating....but if there was, I could'nt blame them. Look at 2002 and 2003 if you want reasoning. 2 terrible seasons for him. And I'm talking "Adam Dunn terrible", minus the HR's and SB's. But it looks like he's finally recovered from the broken leg. Thank god for the A's, cuz without him being successful, they'd be doomed.

I ain't hatin' but I also ain't lovin'. Personally, I don't see why everyone always expected so much from him (me included). The truth is that he has had 2 very good seasons in his career, and it has been 4 years since the last, and 1 good season. I'm not saying that he won't succeed this year. I just wouldn't expect a stellar season.

I'll throw a lot of love his way. He conditioned hard in Arizona in the offseason and its clear that it has paid off. Though I would expect a significant tail-off in the second half, he is the right guy to trade for a good deal by the all-star break.
Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

If anything, it's been a Dye lovefest in the forum lately (which is OK by me because I picked him up just before the start of the season).
