Hey everyone, I'm new to the site, but I had to move from Chicago and miss talking Sox as much as real pizza and Italian Beef, which I did not know does not exist outside of Chicago.
Anyway, it doesn't take long to see Thome is the first choice of the fans on this site to fill our vacancy at DH, but why no mention of Dye. I'll admit my reasons are far more sentimental than statistical since Dye was our World Series MVP and my seats were in right field where he was always a stand up guy for us fans, but he was the most productive outfielder at the plate from 06 through 08 for all of MLB, he's more versatile than Thome should we need him for an NL game or two and he doesn't carry the stain of Cleveland on him. As much as I like Thome, he will be an Indian come his call to the Hall of Fame, so I'd rather have someone who is a Sox first. (and makes more contact)
