What would you guys think about trading Konerko for Kendall? Obviously there would have to be a third team involved b/c I'm pretty sure the Pirates don't want to pay Konerko. So ship Konerko to Mets/Dodgers/etc., they send prospects to the Pirates, and we get Kendall. Kendall would fill our hole at catcher, and also at the leadoff spot.

A problem is Kendall's contract since I think he's scheduled to make $34M over the next three years. However, I know the Pirates don't want to pay that, so I'm sure they would eat a chunk of his salary if they got the right deal. From their perspective, even if they pay $10 M (I don't expect them to pay that much, just throwing a number out there) that's a savings of $24 M.

What do you guys think?

I'd do it, but I don't have the glowing opinion of Konerko that most have.
