Sox not parting with Delcarmen, Masterson for Dye

New, comments

The Red Sox are not going to part with prospect Justin Masterson or bullpen stud Manny Delcarmen to obtain White Sox outfielder Jermaine Dye:

Chicago would take Wily Mo Pena but want either Manny Delcarmen or Justin Masterson. The Red Sox will not part with either for a rent-a-player like Dye, who is eligible for free agency after the season.

There is a decent chance that the Red Sox will not make a substantive deal before tomorrow's 4 p.m. deadline, but stay tuned.

Ok, we've talked about Delcarmen and Masterson possibly being traded with Wily Mo Pena, but I have a quick question: where's Dye going to play? Is he going to be a bench player? Is JD Drew going to be benched or traded? Is Coco Crisp going to be benched or traded? All these scenarios seem unlikely.

I'm in the "No Dye" boat. Anyone joining me?
