Why didn’t the Giants go after Dye? Where might he go now?

Robothal (h/t MLBTR):

…  The [2010] option in Dye’s contract might have been another obstacle. If traded, he has the right to convert his $12 million mutual option into a player option within 72 hours of his assignment, according to major- league sources. The Giants might have feared taking on significant payroll for next year, but they also could have negotiated with Dye to restructure his deal. As it stands, Dye is guaranteed only $1 million beyond this season — the value of his buyout if the White Sox decline his option. Perhaps Dye will return to the White Sox at a lower number. He also would make sense for the Giants as a free agent, and the Cubs could be another fit if they trade right fielder Milton Bradley. Dye has eight homers and 12 doubles in 115 career at-bats at Wrigley Field.

speaking of Dye, here’s Jayson Stark (h/t MLBTR):

While the White Sox included Jermaine Dye in the list of names on Kenny Williams’ I’ll-trade-all-these-bums e-mail Monday, clubs that checked in on Dye came away with the impression the White Sox were significantly less interested in dealing him than they were in moving some of their other names. “The pieces they moved didn’t affect them,” said an official of one club. “But they wanted something good for Dye.”
