His phantom hit by pitch in Game 2 set up the Paul Kornerko slam.
His RBI single in Game 3 helped the White Sox come back from behind, setting up the 14 inning marathon.
And of course he drove in the only run of Game 4, singling off of Brad Lidge and gave the White Sox the title.
Think about how a Chicago pennant, let alone a World Series title, seemed so elusive.
White Sox fans who want to feel all warm and fuzzy inside should thank Dye for delivering the title that so many generations craved.
And petty White Sox fans should salute Dye for making sure a White Sox title arrived before a Cubs title. (And with the Lou Piniella era sputtering to a close, Sox fans might have that bragging right for a while longer!)
So let's see those blogs sending out love.
Jermaine Dye... get ready. Your number will be retired in Chicago before long. (Just don't sign with the Cubs.)
