Misleading title- I know. I think that the Philly signing of Ibanez could be key for the Sox.

I think that it would be huge if the Sox could move Konerko this winter. The Angels have always seemed to have the most interest and it's been written that if they can't sign Tex. or Ibanez then they may look at Konerko again as the bat that they need.

So, I'm crossing my fingers.

You do realize, he is a 10/5 guy right?

How many different threads do we really need to say the same thing?!?! I bet if you type the key words Konerko, trade, Angels you might get 250 different results on WSI.

When it comes to Konerko and trade possibilities to the Angels, just assume he'd accept the trade--because he would. They're a good team from the west coast, that trains in the Phoenix area. He'd go there.

Until, we hear Sox and Angels are talking, I don't think we need 2-3 threads a day saying we need to trade Konerko to the Angels. It is getting annoying.

And why would he or should he??

Just hypothetical. The point is, if the Angels and White Sox agreed to a trade that involved Konerko, he would agree to go there because of the reasons I mentioned. That said, it's unlikely PK is going anywhere because he really sucked in 2008 and he has 2/24 mil left.

This has been said in other threads, but IMO Konerko is much more valuable to the White Sox in 2009 than what he would bring in return on a trade. He will have a bounce back year in 2009...

Are we getting a young 1B back? Are we signing Mark Texeira?

Trading Konerko right now doesn't make sense.

You forgot to add in Figgins. That might bump it to 400 results.

Throw in Carl Crawford and it's 600 threads.

We're signing Dunn to a 4 year contract. He'll play 1B this year, and move to DH when Thome leaves.

Other than, everyday, someone thinking they are clever in starting a, "I think we need to trade Konerko to LAA". I like to read rumors, but fans starting rumors out of no where is annoying.

Not to mention the same rumor over 10-20 different threads! I like reading rumors as well, but the redundancy of the same thing over and over and over again saying the same thing, gets boring.

I'm not complaining about rumors. I like the speculation. Its the same idea with a different title, I don't like. I come to read the thread to find out its the same thing over and over again.

I wouldn't care if it was a poster saying we should trade Konerko to the Yankees for A-Rod, but Konerko to LAAAA doesn't need a new thread every day!

I came into the thread to read it's content. You came in to complain and annoy. Just giving you a taste of your own medicine.

I only read them because I'm hoping that Konerko does get traded . Mr. I can only advance one base on a single and 2 bases on double add to that his miserable start of last season only complimented by his great play with me referring him as mr. August and September stats.. Can he be gone for April, May June and July and return for the August and September and the post season.

There is no content here. No content, no substance, nothing but fluff. The move doesn't even involve the Angels or the Sox. This no relation.

The OP might as well have said "I was taking a number 2 today, and because I only flushed 1 time, you know 1 like first base, it made me realize the Angels still need Konerko and this number 2 makes it more likely he will go there"

Maybe you should read the description of WTS again, eh?

Just because this is the section for rumors doesn't mean people should just make stuff up or start new threads on the same topic everyday. There are a crap ton of Konerko to the Angels threads, go post this **** in one of those. What was the point of starting a new thread?

There wasn't a link that said The Angels liked Ibanez and now will focus on Konerko, nothing like that. IF anything, Ibanez losing out has 1% impact on Konerko in that they both play offense. One is a 1b, one is an OF, one hits lefty,one hits righty. Unless Konerko somehow becomes a left handed OF next year, this is useless.

Here's a question I posed in a Baseball Prospectus chat. The chat was with one of the writers who was at the winter meetings in Vegas:


Ben (Work): Thanks for taking the time for the chat. We all know there have been substantial talks with a couple of teams regarding Jermaine Dye (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pecota/dyeje01.php), but is there any information on players like Bobby Jenks (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pecota/jenksbo01.php), Paul Konerko (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pecota/konerpa01.php), and Jim Thome (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pecota/thomeji01.php), who are all possibilities to be traded this offseason?
John Perrotto: It appears that the White Sox (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/team_audit.php?team=CHA) are going to hang on to Jenks now and there never seemed to be much of a market for Konerko and Thome, who both have no-trade clauses.

You have to keep in mind a lot of those people don't come here everyday and don't bother to look at older threads. Maybe they should, but they don't come here enough to know that it's an issue to some people.
