I wonder if this means Dye just isn't available to the Twins or if that rumored extended contract is in the works.


Pssst: Besides designated hitter Mike Piazza, left, of the Oakland A's, the Twins have tried to acquire outfielders Kevin Mench of the Milwaukee Brewers and Jermaine Dye of the Chicago White Sox. But neither is available. Instead of Dye, Chicago offered outfielder Darin Erstad, who is from Jamestown, N.D., but the Twins were not interested.

Or it could have been the Twins were offering weak prospects, so the Sox thought they'd offer something more in kind.

It sounds just like the Twins to offer absolutely nothing, which is probably the case. So add in there a nice laugh by Kenny, and a sarcastic, "I'll give you Erstad instead," and that's probably about how it went.

BTW, has Dye even passed through waivers? I'd be surprised if he did.

I'm guessing the Twins claimed him off waivers, but I have nothing to base that on other than my own omniscience.
