Dye trade talk

CHICAGO%20WHITE%20SOX.jpgCLEVELAND - Jermaine Dye is well-versed in the trade rumor department.
So with a Bay Area newspaper reporting that the White Sox outfielder is on the radar of the San Francisco Giants and their general manager Brian Sabean, Dye continued to deliver his own company line on Monday.
"I'm not talking about trades,'' Dye said.
When asked again?
"I'm not talking about trades,'' was the response.
The Giants are not one of the six teams in his no-trade clause, but the New York Mets, who are also starting to shop for a bat, are.
What Dye would talk about, however, is the fact that as of last week, Sox Gm Ken Williams stated that he was not a seller. An assessment that Dye not only agreed with, but he was also hoping that he and his teammates could persuade Williams to get some help and be a buyer.
"We shouldn't be, we're still in it,'' Dye said, very matter-of-factly. "We're only five games out. What do I think about that? [Williams is] evaluating the club and right now he feels like right now we're still in it. That's what we feel in this clubhouse. This division is still up for grabs and we feel like we're going to do whatever we can to win this division and put ourselves in a good position around the All-Star Break.
"Hopefully, he'll look at that as whatever we need to make this team a little bit better, maybe he'll go out and do what he's known for doing. He's known for making his club better and hopefully giving us a chance to win a division again.''
