Jermaine Dye?

So now the Mets have interest in Jermaine Dye. Jermaine Dye?

That’s the last thing the Mets need, a 33 year old outfielder (sound familiar?) who is currently hitting .212, 12 HR, 39 RBI and 2 stolen bases. If Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune is right, I will be so disappointed in the Mets:

The Mets had been looking closely at Buehrle and right fielder Jermaine Dye, but there might not be a match right now despite some strong sentiment for Dye. Sox GM Kenny Williams and Minaya have done deals in the past, the most recent one a few years ago with the Sox's acquisition of Carl Everett.

This has got to be a joke. If not, then I don’t want to see anyone with almost no kind of upside go to the Sox for Dye.

White Sox Get: Julio Franco and Jake Gautreau (2nd base New Orleans Zephyrs)
Mets Get: Jermaine Dye
