What the heck is Jermaine Dye waiting for?

Apr 1, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

Jermaine Dye headshot.jpgWe heard over the winter that Jermaine Dye rejected a $3 million offer from the Cubs.  Today we learn, via Morosi and Rosenthal, that Dye rejected the overtures of the Milwaukee Brewers in just the past week.

We don’t know how much the Brewers offered Dye, of course, but if the guy really wants to play baseball in 2010, what other options does he have?  He miscalculated the market this year. He’s got no team that wants him. It becomes less likely, not more likely, that someone will come calling as the season wears on.

What, exactly, is Jermaine Dye waiting for?

    Heard he’s not all that motivated to sign anywhere. Cool staying home with his kids if he doesn’t find the right $$/role.

    It’s the summer of Jermaine! Maybe he bought a vibrating chair and can’t be bothered with this baseball stuff.

    It’s all the rage with aging vets. The pitchers (who we all know to be of a higher level of intelismarts than the common position player) have been gaming this system for some time now, and now JD wants to hop on the bandwagon; why play for some schmuck team when he can wait until the deadline and play for a contender? At his age, $$ $$. Some team in the hunt will find his presence too attractive to pass up come July/August.
    Prediction: Red Sox, and a platoon w. Ortiz at DH.

    Heh, heh…something about using less than/greater than signs really screwed that post up…
    ** At his age, $$ (is less than) Ring (is greater than) $$. **
    Ugh…

    Sorry Megary, but the Brewers are a contender. My guess is that Dye is holding out for more money.

    Yes, everyone is a contender on 4/2. My bad.

    CAn’t understand why he’s not signed. How old is he? He was still very productive and clutch in ’09. As a Yankee fan, I’d rather have him in right field than Swisher, and I’d rather have him in left than Gardner.
