In the 2004-05 offseason, Jermaine Dye signed as a free agent with the Chicago White Sox to be their starting rightfielder, replacing Magglio Ordonez, who signed a free agent contract with the Detroit Tigers.

In addition to the fact that they both spent multiple seasons as the starting right fielder on the South Side of Chicago, Dye and Ordonez have another thing in common. They were born on the same day: January 28, 1974. The next table compares the career records of Jermaine Dye and Magglio Ordonez as measured by Player won-lost records.

The move of Ordonez to Detroit and Dye to Chicago in 2005 (their age-31 season in the above table) worked out well for both players. They ended up being the starting right fielder for the American League pennant winner in consecutive seasons.

Dye probably got the better of that exchange as the White Sox won the 2005 World Series with Dye being named World Series MVP. Ordonez's Tigers, on the other hand, lost the 2006 World Series so Ordonez had to content himself with "only" hitting a pennant-winning walk-off 3-run home run to end the 2006 ALCS.

Overall, both Dye and Ordonez had very good major-league careers (even if neither of them are likely to get more than a tiny handful of Hall-of-Fame votes).
