Konerko named Player of the Month

CHICAGO - With each new accolade Paul Konerko receives comes a whole new round of tiptoeing.

Whether he's being named an All-Star or American League Player of the Month -- as he was on Wednesday for hitting .340 with 12 homers and 22 RBIs in June -- Konerko does his best to politely down play questions that try and goad him into saying how great he is.

"I'm just always careful with that kind of stuff because it's not like Player of the Month, or being in the Home Run Derby or going to the All-Star Game -- none of that stuff -- is going to get me any more hits in the second half," Konerko said. "It's not going to get me any homers or help me drive in any more runs or win any more games for our team."

As good as Konerko was in June, he also had 28 RBIs and hit .371 in April and has had only two hitless streaks of as many as three games all season.

And as good as he has been on the field, he's perhaps even more valuable for what he's brought to the White Sox clubhouse on a daily basis since arriving from Cincinnati in 1998.
