Jermaine Dye is grumpy

It seems that Jermaine Dye, who hasn't played since last Friday, is a little upset at all the attention that fellow free-agent-to-be Mark Buehrle has been receiving. When asked if he had any talks with the Sox about a contract extension, he let it be known that he wasn't too happy at the apparent double-standard.

"Like who? [General manager] Kenny [Williams]? No. For what? We weren't going to negotiate during the season, remember?"


"I don't really care," said Dye, at the outset of his explanation prior to Saturday's game with the Royals. "Whatever happens to Buehrle, he deserves whatever he gets."


"I really don't want to say what I want to say," Dye said. "No comment."

Dye followed that exchange with more 'no comments' when asked follow-up questions.

Dye might have a beef if he didn't look like a shell of his former self. There's not a lot of demand for a "right fielder" who can no longer play the field, and there's going to be little demand for a designated hitter who can't get on base 30 percent of the time. Just ask Carl Everett.
