Jermaine Dye is grumpy

New, 17 comments

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.
