Paul Konerko hits into double plays 23% (3 out of 13) of the time.

Thats somewhat of a misleading statistic.

More accurate:

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=5908

2004 GROUND/FLY ANALYSIS
At Bats: 63 | Flyball: 39.7% | Groundball: 34.9% | Strikeout: 4.8% | GIDP: 4.8%

It's at the bottom.

A lot of those BP stats have little meaning until May

FWIW, I've never seen anybody hit into so many DP's where he just flat out killed the ball.

Alot of times, I'm saying "yes" when the ball leaves the bat only to see the SS field the ball.

Seriously, I remember a play from I think last year, the 3B kicked a Konerko grounder to the SS, the SS kicked it, picked it up & still threw him out at 1B by about 5 feet

Since he has struck out only three times so far this year, maybe you should contact Konerko and recommend that he strike out whenever there's someone on base and less than two outs.. That would eliminate the GIDPs.
