Yesterday made the 3rd time he had to leave because of a calf injury this year...I know he is having a great season, but he does have a history of being injured, outside of his bug bite, he played just about every game last year, first time in 3 years. If it's hurting him. let put him on the shelf for a couple weeks and get this healed so it's not bothering him all year, if we put him on now, we can have him back and ready for the Cubs series. Ozzie has to be pulling his hair out when he makes him the clean up hitter and he lasts an inning....by teh way, why was he the lean up and Paulie the 3 hole yesterday? Dye did great in the 3 hole last year....oh well....get healthy Jermaine, we need ya

I have complete faith in Herm. He knows what's best for these guys and the team more than anyone.

I agree. I'd rather rely on him than any of us WSI posters to decide if he should go on the DL.

The Cub series isn't a priority. It's 3 games against a garbage team

Seriously, aren't we over this yet? It's like some people were completely oblivious to last season.

Dye's injury history is not a chronic situation, but a series of unrelated owies. The calf probably needs some rest, but not 15 days. However, like most WSIers, I am not a doctor and even if I was, I have not personally examined Dye's calf, so I cannot say what should be done.

As far as the important Cubs series is concerned, I've put my tickets for all three games on ebay, I've got better things to do with my life that weekend.

Most people will never let it go. Now that the team won it all, I doubt they take those games nearly as seriously as they used and on the contrary, the other team will probably take them much more seriously. And for the record I think we all know that the games always meant a lot more to the fans than the players involved, but in the past you knew the Sox played those games with something to prove.

I agree with most of the others. Only Herm, JD and the other Sox braintrust can truly tell if he needs to take some time off. All the players will tell you the Cubs-Sox series is just another series, and that these games are mosre for the fans. What matters is who's playing in October. If the Sox win the WS again, I couldn't care less what happens in the Cub-Sox thing. The baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. :D:

If he was having knee troubles I'd say no doubt, if he was having trouble planting his feet because of quads/hams I'd say more then likely need to DL him.

But calf? Nah. Like the posters said above, he has no history of calf injuries, and the calf muscle is such a quick healing muscle.

Rest will work for him, keep him out of the lineup 2-3 days and I think he'll be just fine.

Why is the cub series your worry for him being back or are you simply listing the cubs\sox games as a point in time for easy refrence?

True but dye has had a history of injury problems period, last year we saw what kind of player he was when he played an entire season healthy

Little of both....it was an easy reference, but I don't care what anyone says on this board, that series means a lot to us, we want to beat them and beat them bad, if we lose that series, no matter what anyone else say's it hurts, and I know losing any series hurts, but this one stings just a little bit more and everyone knows that! I know we can beat them with or without him, but I'd love to see JD smack a few over the wall on them too!

With Seattle and KC coming up, I wouldn't mind if they rested him through the weekend just to be safe and brought him back for the Anaheim series early next week. I'd sure miss that cannon of an arm in right field though.

If an MRI hasn't been taken, I would like to see an MRI done. Just to make sure everything is OK. If they MRI is taken and something is wrong, put Dye on the DL. I don't want this to linger.

But I do remember Reggie Jackson when he was on the Angels, he had lots of trouble with his calves but he rarely missed any games.

Why do we want to beat them bad? A win against this team means less than a win against KC

I agree a little rest couldn't hurt..maybe Pods should have taken that advice in the beginning of the season instead of playing with that sore/injured groin

I kind of agree with placing dye on the DL. A healthy dye will be more important in the 2nd half and down the stretch then now. Even if the injusry isn't serious put him on the DL retro to last week and let him sit another 7 days and get a cleared head. The worst thing you can do is be worried about the injury while playing and let if effect your perfromance mentally. This is why KW added to our bench depth, let JD rest a little and come back strong in a week and give Mack and Gload a little more time. We play seattle, Minn, and KC i think we will still be fine.

I don't understand the clear his head comment. Last ten games Dye is hitting 382. So maybe that explains why he's continuing to play. He's in a groove and his defense is still top notch.

I was kind of referring to his defense because the last two times he has been removed form a game for the calf thing it has been as a results of fielding or making a play in right.

First of all, how did you get tickets for all three games that weekend? Full season tickets? Also, does the fact that I'm going to the game on the 19th make me Flubsessed?:o: :redneck This thread is so confusing!

As for Dye, I'm sure that the White Sox training staff is more than qualified to make a decision on Jermaine Dye. Considering none of us has been privy to an examination of his calf speculating on putting him on the DL seems like a waste of time.
