Filling In The Gaps On The Failed Dye Trade

A few pieces of information were revealed today on the failed three team trade that was to send Jermaine Dye to Boston.

According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox would've had to surrender reliever Hideki Okajima in order to get Dye.  Whether Okajima would've ended up with the White Sox or the third club is unknown, but Chicago makes the most sense. Okajima has been absurdly good this year - he's allowed five earned runs in 51.2 innings.  The unexpected huge success of he and Takashi Saito should cause MLB teams to sign every Japanese reliever with a functional arm this winter.  Of course, the Red Sox refused to give up Okajima to get Dye.

Meanwhile, Buster Olney reported that the third team was the Brewers.  RotoWorld speculated that the Red Sox may have been trying to get Derrick Turnbow from Milwaukee.  The White Sox might've been eyeing Turnbow as well.  Kenny Williams is also known to like Manny Parra
