Yeah, that question ranks right up there with:

For the sake of conversation, and for the fact that I'm curious, why is Dye better? First of all, I don't know how Burnitz is as a fielder, but apparently Dye is one of the best in the biz. (At least according to MVP Baseball 2004 )

Dye has the capability of being a legitimate middle of the order hitter, but injuries have been an issue the past few years.

We all know Burnitz strikes out a lot, and from what I hear he hit Paul Konerko-like away from the home stadium. What else do we know on this guy?

Last 4 years

Dye: BA OBP SLG HR RBI OPS+

2001 .282 .346 .467 26 106 109
2002 .252 .333 .459 24 86 105
2003 .172 .261 .253 4 20 41
2004 .265 .329 .464 23 80 103


Burnitz: BA OBP SLG HR RBI OPS+

2001 .251 .347 .504 34 100 116
2002 .215 .311 .365 19 54 83
2003 .239 .299 .487 31 77 104
2004 .283 .356 .559 37 110 115



How does Dye win in a landslide? It's pretty obvious Burnitz has put up better numbers the last 4 years. Neither is much more than an average hitter, but Burnitz has the edge.

Aren't you conveniently missing the facts that Burnitz hit in Coors Field last year, and Dye suffered 2 freak injuries that hampered his production?

the OPS+ factors in the park they played in. I only remember 1 injury Dye suffered. The broken leg in the 2002 playoffs I believe.

Dye was batting with a broken thumb for much of last season.

Health issues ultimately could separate Dye from success and failure. The soon-to-be 31-year-old battled a broken left thumb last August, a separated shoulder and knee injury in 2003 and broke his leg in the 2001 playoffs on a much publicized foul ball. Dye hit .252 in 2002, .265 with 80 RBIs in 2004 and only .172 over 221 at-bats in 2003.

The best part about having Dye on the Sox is that he won't absolutely kill us singlehandedly when we travel to Oakland

He actually hit better after suffering the broken thumb. Even if you throw out the injury plagued 2003, Burnitz has still put up better numbers 2 out of the other 3 years. Like I said before, neither player will be mistaken for Vlad Guerrero. They are both average players.
