According to the Daily Southtown, Paul Konerko was given the start at first base yesterday because Frank Thomas has a sore ankle. He injured the ankle during Friday's game. If that's the case, though, why wasn't Daubach at first base? Konerko didn't accomplish anything yesterday.

Not sure. Zambrano's a righty, so why not have a lefy up there? My guess is that they're still trying to get Paulie back in the swing of things. This is the wrong time to do it, though. I don't know what to make of Paulie but, despite what he may say, he has to be nursing some sort of injury. It's doubtful that any healthy player would experience a production drop-off like that, even in a slump.
