Via The Dumplog who quotes the Globe:
…a major league source said a short time ago that chances were “pretty good” that the Red Sox would complete a deal with the Chicago White Sox for outfielder Jermaine Dye.
In exchange for Dye, the White Sox would get Wily Mo Pena and a minor league pitching prospect (not Clay Buchholz or Jon Lester).
It will be interesting to see where the Sox fit Dye into the line-up. Is J.D. Drew that bad? Give the Sox credit if this is a move to sit Drew. I’m not sure the Yankees were ever willing to do that with Abreu or Damon this year.
