Giants Scouting V-Mart, Dye

Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Giants are scouting Jermaine Dye and Victor Martinez. The Indians aren't shopping V-Mart and the White Sox aren't sellers at this point, but the Giants need a bat. 

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle confirms that the Giants sent a scout to the Indians-White Sox game and wonders whether they might have their eye on Martinez. He clearly appeals to many teams, but there's no indication that V-Mart's available. After all, the Indians can keep him next year, when they could contend.
Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Dye says he's not talking trades. He says the White Sox, who are only 4.0 games back of the division lead, should try to win this year.
