The Sox would have been much better getting rid of him at the beginning of the year in a salary dump.
I don't understand where all the Konerko bashers have gone. Before the year, there were a lot of people on this board who wanted to trade PK for a baseball and a bottle of glove oil. Congrats to PK.

I'm still here. I'm happy because this raises his trade value, but that's about it. Thank you for doing what we wanted you and needed you to do last year, a year too late, Paulie.

are you kidding? they are still all around us. paul did everything anyone could have hoped for this season.
those who wanted to trade him for 'glove oil' STILL want to trade him .... only now they'll want an ace pitcher!

my kudos to paul for being one of the few bright spots this year.
if paul is moved then so be it ... but i, for one, believe he earned every penny he made this year relative to every other ML ball player.

Way to go PK! Hopefully he can win the AL Homerun Crown. I know he & we would rather be in the playoffs, but it least it's a reason to watch the last 12 games.

I'm still here. :yoohoo:

But just because I/we want Paulie to be traded does not mean I don't respect the man's accomplishments this year. Congrats Paulie on 40 HRs! And congrats for a hell of a year, proving you are an elite power hitter in this park.. I mean, this league.

(just a joke, guys...)

If Thomas has a better numbers year in 2005 than Konerko had this year, I will buy you a weekend pass to Soxfest in 2006.

FYI, Frank was on pace to have better numbers than Konerko this year before he went down. There is no reason to believe he won't put up better numbers next season.

He'll put up Paulie's numbers and get on base at a much higher clip if he's healthy. Only Manny Ramirez is as good of an all around hitter in the AL as Frank Thomas when healthy.

FYI, IF Frank were healthy Konerko would have had even better numbers than he already has. But I hope Frank comes back strong next year and is healthy for the duration of the flight.

I will never understand all of these White Sox fans who want to trade Pauly away, he had one bad year(and he was hurt & still played)the only thing I can think of why is that Frank was hurt most of the year so they needed to find someone to piont thier fingers at and scream trade him. The guy plays 1st base as good as anyone in the AL he's hitting .275/.280 40hrs over 100 rbi's and think of what his stats could have been if we had Frank & Maggs in the lineup. I know this team needs to be re-evaluated and maybe some players need to go but to let Pauly go would be a GIANT mistake. The guy just keeps going out there and with the exception of last year he keeps producing. I say they keep C.Lee & Pauly and build around them.

The guy plays 1st base as good as anyone in the ALumm, no. He defense is vastly overrated on this board. He has zero...absolutely ZERO...range, and awfully slow reflexes. His defense is maybe a little above average, but that is it.

I know this team needs to be re-evaluated and maybe some players need to go but to let Pauly go would be a GIANT mistake."Let Paulie go." *Sigh* :rolleyes: Yes, our plan is to just release Paulie from his contract outright. Even though he's second in the AL in homeruns, we couldn't possibly acquire any significant talent for him in a trade.

Some people will just not accept the notion of a talent-for-talent trade. But I guess it is tough to see a perennial underachieving 2nd place team broken up.

umm, no. He defense is vastly overrated on this board. He has zero...absolutely ZERO...range, and awfully slow reflexes. His defense is maybe a little above average, but that is it.I think Paulie made the defensive play of the year for the Sox in Detroit earlier this year with that diving catch with the bases loaded.

Some people will just not accept the notion of a talent-for-talent trade. I'll accept that, but I don't understand why everyone is so eager to get rid of said talent. Of course, there are people on this board who want to trade Burly-mon, Lee, Garland, etc. Come to think of it, there are people on this board who want the whole team traded. PK is a solid player and a good representative of the White Sox, I guess I just don't understand the constant discrediting of his accomplishments that is done around here. Congrats on a great season PK. And cheers :gulp:to many more on the south side.

Right, I remember that play. It was a pretty great play, and it happend to come with the bases loaded. But overall, he's not as stellar defensively as say, JT Snow or Doug Mientkiewicz or Derrek Lee or (in the past) Mark Grace.

Also, IMO, the defensive play of the year came waaaay back in April, when things were still important. It was in Yankee Stadium. Jon Garland was having one of his typical fits of control problems that was going to trigger big-inningitis in a close game. With runners on first and second (both via walks), Miguel Olivo and his lightening-fast move to second base (as well as his cannon arm) picked off the runner at second and saved Garland's ass (he walked the next two hitters IIRC, but got out of the inning without allowing a run). I remember sensing at the time how that play invigorated the players, as well as me.

Cwede's immune system = weak. Is that supposed to be a joke? I guess I just don't get it. A guy hits a walk off home run and you call him mentally and physically weak. The logic in your post=weakest of all
