Given their ages, I'd prefer Nady. I'm pretty sure they both suck in the field.

both do, but both would be backups

Nady over Fuld
Dye over Hoffpauir

I would take Fuld over Nady and Hoff over Dye , there is a better chance of a new player trying for a starter job to exceed expectations.

Nady would be the Cubs RH bat.

All three of these guys (Fuld, Nady, Dye) are extremely fragile. If they get any extending playing time its going to mean worse things have happened.

Dye is the one that we could possibly get a short-term jump from , much like we did with Edmonds. Dye would have to be used in the right spots and when he has the best chance for success. If we had a manger that I knew really evaluated each player knowing the strengths and weaknesses of each player , I would be willing to try either Dye or Nady . But we have Lou and he doesn't seem that he wants to be bothered with all that preparation crap so we may be best off with the easy plug and play guys like Fuld.

Dye had a bad year last year, but consistently over his career he has been real good. He would be a huge upgrade over Hoffpauir

I recall Dye being a career Al player. Has he even played for a NL team?

No he did not. But as a backup outfielder and backup to Lee at 1B, he would be an upgrade over Hoffpauir IMO
