View Full Version : Dye could be joining the Rangers next year?


Sox Insider

Ron Washington has only been the Rangers manager since Monday, but he is already making Texas a potentially choice destination for free agents. It will take money to get any deals done, but prize free-agent pitcher Barry Zito has placed the Rangers on his short list as a result of Washington's hire.

Over lunch Wednesday, Washington said: "Barry Zito called me yesterday. He wants to make a visit here. Texas wasn't on his list, but it is now." ... Washington also said former A's outfielder Jermaine Dye called with the same message. Dye, however, will not be a free agent until next year, as the Chicago White Sox already picked up his option for 2007

I'm pretty sure you can't discuss deals with other teams while being under contract, I would imagine Dye could be fined a huge amount of money if he inquired to Washington about coming to the Rangers.

Absolutely not happening! Dye loves it here and even took less money to come here even BEFORE we won the World Series!

Here's a link (http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/sports/baseball/15968702.htm) to the article he's talking about. If I'm Rangers' management, I would tell this guy to shut up before he gets them in trouble or makes them look stupid because they don't sign any of these free agents mentioned in the article.

In '07? Don't see it happening. Dye was definitely our most consistent and probably our best player last year. He's relatively cheap as well. Can't see it happening.

He said in '08. Which I'm not worried about, and I don't get why you guys would be freaking out right now. It could be that the Sox want to go younger with Sweeney or Fields, so let this year play out before we start worrying about who's going where in 2008.

Actually, Dye could have been calling Washington for congratulatory reasons. Dye proved to be a man of character early in his tenure with the White Sox, when there were still WSI posters suggesting an end to "The Jermaine Dye experiment."

Tampering rules aside, I don't think it's out of the question that Dye slides a little next season. It's common after career year-type seasons. Who's to say what the market for him will be for 2008?

And if he has a year like he did in 2004 for the A's, I don't see the White Sox making any effort to resign him.

Hey you ****ing :dtroll: , your screen name is proof of the old saying "the more they say, the less they have/do." You're a "Sox insider" like I'm the Pope. If you're a Sox insider, you would have informed the Commissioner's Office instead of WSI.

Also, if you're such an "insider," why did you wait until now to register and not duing the 2005 season?

I know, you're Kenny!

Tampering besides, Dye has said several times, he wants to play out the rest of his career in Chicago. Nothing has happened in the 4 or 5 months since he said this to change this.

Well since we are getting pretty personal here.. I chosen the screen name since I've been working for the Sox for the last 8 seasons so I do know Jerry Reinsdorf and Kenny Williams personally. Do I get any really inside info going on this offseason not really..

As for the report about Dye it came from a Texas newspaper and not me jerkoff. Reading is a skill you should try it sometime.

Huh, I wonder if Kenny and Jerry would like it if one of their employees was on a message board calling a fan and paying customer a "jerkoff"?

Dump jumped on him, but this guy claims to be a Sox employee- I highly doubt the club would view hurling epithets at the fans as acceptable behavior.

By the way, I posted a link to the article, so I know he's not making things up.

Um-- the guy got cursed at for posting something from a newspaper article, and in return he calls someone a jerkoff, and you think the club would have a problem with that? I don't. Was the employee at work when he did that? Or is it back to the old "Mark Buehrle can only wear a Sox cap, ever, anywhere" argument?

It's hardly like a Sox ticket agent using blue language at a customer at the box office, for pete's sake.

This board is very strange in the off-season, I must say.

11-11-2006, 09:46 AM
I thought I read somewhere that Sox employees (and players) are not permitted to post on fan boards. I realize the ones that want to do so do it from home computers and not at the office. Brandon McCarthy was a poster here until he got signed.

Worked there for 8 years? In what capacity? I know people who worked there for many years with lots of contact with Jerry and Kenny-they serve food and drinks in the exclusive areas of the park.

If Insider is truely an insider with access to Jerry and Kennys' thought processes, he would know better than to leak things out. Even if reported in an out-of-town newspaper who would love to see certain players on their hometeam.

11-11-2006, 09:59 AM
I saw that article yesterday and I was taken irritated at first. Then I thought about it and realized the manager most likely has an over inflated sense of self importance, thinking every player that ever knew him is dying to play for him.

I am sure JD called and offered his congratulations, but I seriously doubt JD is even thinking about where he will be in 2008 right now.

Writing is also a skill, sometimes more important than reading. Maybe you could try posting a link or at least citing your source, so that other posters don't have to.

The benefits will be twofold: you won't be plagiarizing and you won't be accused of making up ****.

No. A lot of people on the board looked at that first post, saw no source given, and saw a man claiming other people's ideas as his own. Despite the obvious legal ramifications, one of the other risks of doing that is when people don't like your ideas, they are going to assume that the ideas are yours.

Just because Bruuuce Levine says that the Cubs are getting Alex Rodriguez doesn't make it so.

....back when he was hitting .200 and playing some very POOR defense in LF ?? I totally remember that. Poor 1st couple of months, but he did turn it around suddenly ......good for him
