Konerko in line to get the big bucks in '03

For his sake, Jerry Reinsdorf better be able to separate his emotions as a fan from those as an owner. Otherwise the Chairman might be heading toward a breakdown before this season, if not this weekend, is over.

With Comiskey Park packed on a gorgeous, semi-perfect Friday afternoon, the White Sox staged a comeback against Kerry Wood that perfectly illustrates the twisted dilemma in which Reinsdorf finds himself.

On the one hand, there was something absolutely magical about Paul Konerko hitting two homers after Wood had plunked him in the head. It was the kind of inspired play that could awaken the flagging pulse of the underachieving White Sox, who Konerko says have been "mediocre" since the start of 2001.

"At some point you get sick of being mediocre," Konerko said after the 13-9 Sox victory. "Hopefully this is the last time we get tired of it and we take off on a roll."

Sounds great. But you know what they say about talk. Baseball salaries, on the other hand, definitely aren't cheap.

By continuing to be the Sox's most productive hitter, Konerko has kept the meter spinning on his future value. His 4-for-4 day, with one two-run homer off Wood and another off Joe Borowski, left him batting .341. He's on a pace to hit 42 homers and lead the league with 147 runs batted in.

But what will it mean if the Sox continue to flounder behind Minnesota? And, in no small consideration, what will it cost?
