Wow that's amazing. I sure wish that I didn't know that now. But good job finding some interesting stats.

So it's come to this? The Cubs pitchers are more productive than Konerko?!?!?!? Konerko should be ashamed of himself, give his entire paycheck back, and then jump off a cliff. More likely Konerko will continue to play and make an even bigger fool of himself....if that's even possible.

Right now, I'd take Mark Prior as a hitter over Konerko. Prior actually has the highest BA on the entire Flubs roster.

Damn..I should've followed your warning Chisox. I was much happier 1 minute ago.

I was convinced Player C was Joe Crede - I knew player A was not a Chi Sox player. I knew B was Konerko because the Indians broadcasters were talking about how shocked they were that he only had 15 RBIs.

What isn't reflected in those stats are Konerko's leadership skills which are the only thing that's holding this team together. :D:

A sick and twisted person might find this situation humorous. Last season, when Thomas and Konerko had their feud, Paul remarked that he wished he could struggle and still produce as well as Frank did during the first half of 2002. Frank's numbers at the time (.239, 14 HR, 54 RBI) are light years ahead of what Konerko's will be once the All Star break rolls around. The Chicago media called for Frank's head, believing that he was done. If Frank is done, then the White Sox are in big trouble, because Paul Konerko plays as though he's a dead man. Good grief!
