Jermaine Dye Strategy

Postby tmyanks24 » Sat Apr 24, 2004 8:29 am

Have most Jermaine Dye owners just held onto him or do you think its a better strategy to trade him for an outfielder more reliable than he is?

If you can get a good deal, sell high. Think of his ceiling as .280 30HR 100RBI and try to deal him to somebody who has higher expectations.

i got dye for free off of the free agent list in good ol publeague#2 i'm kind of inclined to hold on to him so i have a decent outfield of vlad, sosa, and tyedye... however, if the performance fleece fits, wear it i spose.

depends on your squad and what you might need more than a guy who you prolly got considerably cheaper than a normally-priced .300/30/100 type

I picked up Dye off of waivers last week. I am considering offering him for Aubry Huff hoping Huff's owner will bite. This may sound crazy right but I really think that Huff will break out very soon. Plus Huff will have eligibiity at 1B, 3B, and OF. Also, I also have Manny, Brian Giles, And Carlos Beltran in my outfield plus David Ortiz, and Richie Sexton so I will get plenty of HRs and RBIs. What do you guys think?

I like that idea of trading Dye for Huff...Huff owners have to be feeling down on that guy. I think your OF is solid enough to trade away Dye LCBOY ;-D

I also have Dye on my team, and I am inspired to try and swing a similar trade to what you are attempting.

My Roster
C Johnson C
Pujols, Ortiz 1B
Kent 2B
Rolen 3B
Womack SS
Damon, Dye, M Bradley, D Roberts, Burnitz OF

Hudson, L Hernandez, Penny, Glavine, Zambrano, Z Day SP
Rivera, Guardado, Julio RP

His Roster
C Beltran, Guerrero, Ichiro, Pierre OF
Chavez, Blalock 3B
Durham 2B
Huff OF, 1B
Jeter SS
Varitek C
Floyd, Teix, Reyes DL

Oswalt, Morris SP
Dotel, Cordero, Nathan, Biddle, Rhodes, Soriano RP


What is readily apparent is he has no Starting Pitchers. Who from my staff should I package with Dye and what should I ask for in return (in addition to Huff)? :-?

So you want to go for a 2 for 2 trade?

Yeah, I would probably want a 2 for 2 deal, I just can't figure which of my SP's to offer and what to expect in return.
