Jermaine Dye's slow start (Merged)

The two time defending champion of our league just dropped Dye. I have not found anything saying he died, so I am assuming that the owner is just an idiot. He picked up local boy Jenkins who is hot right now. This is my first year in the league....so now I am assuming this league is a bunch of idiots. Of course I have 10th waiver priority...so it would be amazing if I get Dye

I also own Dye and benched him this morning and replaced him with Teahan. He is off to a horrible start and looks absolutely lost at the plate. I wouldnt drop him though.

nothing wrong w him & he shouldnt be dropped, but he was the easiest guy to predict this year IMO, no way was he going to have a year like last year so he would resume being a 3rd, 4th mid-late rd OF, & thats probably what will happen

Jermaine Dye is a turd

I think he'll pick it up... I think last year was his ceiling but I don't see his numbers significant dropping from last year's. I stress significantly... because they WILL drop.

Jermaine Dye's career numbers tend to indicate he's a 275/25/80 guy on an average team. If you give him a little allowance for how the Sox are a good offense and bump him up to 100 RBI, that's still a pretty mediocre stat line. I was fairly sure JD Drew would outperform him this year and so far I haven't been proven wrong.

And the thing is, I realized he'd have a down year as opposed to last, but I'm in a 14 team league where OFs flew off the board and caught me off guard, and I'm basically relying on him as my #1 OF. (Fortunately my IF and pitching are strong!)

Im in a pts league so I'll settle for anything - a 2 hit game, couple of runs scored...all these 0-4 games are freaking killing me! :-t :~(

Can't we discuss how it's only April 10th and he's only had 20 AB instead? What is he going to bat .100 all year? Come on now, guys, these threads are crazy...
