I would rather have Guillen. Hes in a lot better lineup, and does not have as bad of an injured past as Dye, but he does have a short history of injuries. Lately, Guillen has been on a terror.

Guillen, while I don't think he'll post 30+ HR's like last year, I don't expect Dye to either. Dye will most likely hit about .260 as well and drag your teams average down.

I agree about Dye, though Guillen only hit 23 last year and i can see him matching that again this year.

Guillen did hit 31 last year. 23 in Cinci and 8 in Oakland, and I'd take him over Dye.

Seems to me (just like it did when I drafted him), that Guillen benefited greatly from being surrounded by better hitters in Cincy and moving to a more HR inducive ballpark probably helped that out too. Last year was his first full (or almost full year), since '98 and then he was only 22.

I was super concerned of him being a Pat Burrell this year, but now that he's starting to hit that halo lineup is just plain scary. If I were a pitcher Guillen would probably be one of the guys that I would be willing to challenge at the end of the meat of a hefty lineup. Guillen is an up and comer with lots more upside then Dye.

At the very least if the HRs don't come, which I think they will, you know he'll be a lock to get loads of RBIs and score lots of runs. If Dye stops his HR pace you can't say the same of him.

Guillen ;-D .
