I think he had something like .270, 30HR, 90RBI and 11 SB lat year... Guy has been a silent stud when healthy and in that CWS offense he's been real productive. Terrific value where he was drafted this year no doubt about it. Kudos to everyone that took him in their league. What a steal.

I drafted Austin Kearns and Corey Patterson B-)

Yes, Dye has been great. He has put up numbers you might expect from a #1 outfielder.

Got him for $6 in my auction league and was very happy with him and his production so far. Not like I haven't been on the wagon since the beginning of the year but I'm not getting off I can tell you that ;)

he's one of the reasons I'm in 4th still even though I've got 5 DL'd starters.

C'mon ride the train... woo woo!

btw he still has not trade value in my league.

Yeah I drafted Dye with the last pick in the 19th RD of my draft and I have been very happy with his performance to say the least.

The second part is very true too. I was actually trying to unload him when he had 12 HR in a package with Nick Johnson for that bum Tex. Now I think I will just stick it out and watch Dye hit 30-35 HR and knock in Thome and Konerko all year long. ;-D

I'm very much on the bandwagon. Don't even own him in any leagues (since I sold him high enough in my keeper that I couldn't pass it up in a rebuilding year) but I firmly believe he's going to put up 285+/30+/85+/100+/10+ numbers for the year. He's only 32 years old (people seem to think he's older), he's healthy now after some bad injuries in the early '00's and he's batting 5th behind Thome and Konerko. He's the real deal. ;-D

This is very encouraging. I just picked him up in a shallow league and am loving the production. I thought of him as a stop-gap solution while Drew was hurting, but he may just stick around all year!

Playing in KC early on helped to make him go unnoticed, then in Oakland, McGwire and Canseco and Giambi got all the attention, and then just when he should've been breaking out into the spotlight, he broke his leg and that really set him back. The kind of break he had, no matter what the Doctors tell you, it takes time to trust that you aren't going to break it again if you put out maximum effort... And then last year, Konerko and then this year Thome have gotten the spotlight, but he's "over" his broken leg (he's even started to get steals now), and he's in a good rbi spot in the Chisox lineup protecting Thome and Konerko.

One thing I've noticed this year, his walk rate has jumped a bit. Either he's getting pitched around or he's getting more patient at the plate.

I got him off the WW early on. He was on my bench and I tried like hell to trade him. I needed pitching. Everyone said "I just don't like Dye" or "nah, too injury prone." So in turn I had to cross my fingers for Dye to pull through and trade Matt Holliday for pitching. It's working out thus far. Oh and might I add...CC Sabathia has been a fine addition ;-D .

I dropped him in one 8 teamer but I recently picked him back up as my team has slowed down considerably and need some offensive help. Lucky that no one else picked him up :-°
