Jermaine Dye retires

Oh and by the way, he was the 2005 World Series MVP for the Champion White Sox! Dye was a true professional and a dogged competitor. If the White Sox needed a clutch hit during 2005 or 2006 - J.D. was the man you wanted at the plate. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back with the White Sox in some kind of ambassador type position. He was very highly regarded by the organization.

I wish him well. He was a SOLID (not flashy) player. I hated it when my Braves traded him just when he was hitting his stride but thats baseball. He had a decent career and I hope the best for him in the future.
