Paul just continues to look terrible at the plate. His first at bat today was brutal..... :(: :(:

For me I just hate when he swings and hits one of those weak choppers to third. He has his head down when he swings too so when he hits it like that he lowers his head even more and starts "running" to first.

Konerko's usually very hard on himself. He probably gets really angry at himself when he hits those weak grounders

Konerko hasn't swung the bat well in several weeks. I would suggest giving him a day off, but Manuel already tried that. At this point, I don't really know what is going to snap Paul out of his early-season slump. Perhaps some extra time in the batting cage might do him some good, assuming he isn't already doing that.

The important thing is that the team is winning. We're swinging the bats lousy but still winning. I'll be officially worried when we are still swinging the bats lousy but start losing. Until then...

:gulp:

Maybe they should give him another contract extension.

A few months ago, I suggested that Ward be given the nickname "Commander Clueless," and this siutation is proof that I may have been onto something. Ward's time in Chicago has been characterized by "corpse ball," Frank's struggles last season, and now, Konerko's problems. Lee is also struggling. If Magglio begins to struggle, I will call for Ward's head.

Yeah Paulie seems to be really hard on himself. I feel bad that he is struggling after a career year and a lot of pressure to be a leader/big #s guy. I think he'll snap out of it soon. He's due. Lee just looks awful. I can't say anything positive about his at bats.

Well normally I would be concerned but with Paulie hes one of those players that is so good that he will snap out of it without a doubt so Im not too worried, and besides like someone mentioned the sox have won 4 straight, so nothing to be too concerned about.

I'm not worried, its only the 7th game of the season, Paulie will come around! If it was the 77th game of they year I might start to worry. As the weather turns warm so will Paul's bat! I promise!

I'm with George on this. We're winning.

Guys like Jimenez, Valentin, Crede, and Alomar are hot right now, and it's enough to get by against the teams we're playing because our pitching has been superb. All of our bats were stiff against KC.

It's only been 7 games, and the weather has been terrible. I'm not concerned about Frank, Magglio, and Paulie yet.
