With Johnny Damon(notes) headed elsewhere, the Yankees still have an outfield hole to fill and the rumor right now is that it could come in the form of Jermaine Dye(notes), according to River Avenue Blues.
The 35-year-old Dye should be fairly inexpensive, considering that he just had a horrendous year, batting .250. However, he did hammer 27 home runs and 19 doubles. The Yanks don't usually go to the cutout bin to look for stuff, but there is apparently a cutoff point to the purse strings that GM Brian Cashman is coming close to.
The two-time All-Star was the World Series MVP when the Chicago White Sox took home the whole tamale back in 2005. He's played for three other teams: the Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Royals, and Oakland Athletics.
