Did Konerko have a career year last year, or will he put up those type of numbers for the next 5 years?

Depends if his hip starts acting up again.


I think he will put up around the same numbers, and HOPEFULLY cut down on his GIDPs.

I'd like to see him be more productive on the road for 2005.

As would I. His road splits were horrendous last year, hopefully he'll work on that this year.

I think it was a career year for him especially if you consider his home/road splits.

He's a gimp. But he's our gimp.

He's shown he can put up 2004-type numbers or better consistently for a half-season, but only once for an entire season.

Anyone who knows the answer to that and similar questions is urgently requested to interview for the baseball GM job in Tampa, Washington, Dallas, Denver, San Diego, or any of the other towns that could benefit from a psychic.

Seriously...

Konerko's 2004 numbers are actually consistent with his 1999, 2001, and 2002 seasons. In 2000 he was down a little, and 2003 was radically worse than any other season in his White Sox career.

There is no real reason to believe 2004 was some kind of wild fluke.

I was reading a story on Ed Herrmann's website. He has a section devoted to his friend Harry Carey. HC declared "Hoggey" as the slowest man in basebal and said that "there's time for a commercial when he runs to 1st base."

Paulie's simply a quality hitter. His short, textbook swing eliminates long slumps. (excluding 2003, which I think was a fluke). Paulie will probably never eclipse last year's home run numbers but you never know. I would expect .285, 35, 105 every year from Paulie. With the loss of Maggs and CLee many of those 105 ribbies must be daggers in the clutch I'm afraid. His GIDP's are high but that's normal for a slow guy who hits peas.

Did Beltran have a career year?

Ted Williams had a career year in 1941, hitting 62 points above his career average. He played through 1960 and didn't embarrass himself.

You can't tell if someone is having a career year until his career is over. By then it's too late to decide if you want him on your team.

I liked his 2002 season when he had 170+Hits w/ 30HR....Remember Paulie started so slow and still pumped out 41Homers. . .

I dont know about u guys but i cant wait till the 05 season should be interesting w/ the team built around ozzieball!!

Paulie did not have a career year last year. His average was down. He is definitely capable of hitting above .300.

Konerko has always hit wherever he has been his whole life. I would sign him to a long term deal and make him the DH eventually.
