I heard the same thing over the Score, and thought that those offers are not enough to make PK change his baseball address. Unless there is a surprise team out there (you never know), PK will be with the White Sox for the next four seasons, with a possible option. These offers seem to reflect that while Konerko is quite valuable in the open market, he is still worth more to the White Sox. It's the best move for him to return.
:cool:

11-29-2005, 10:05 PM

from that article:

"Citing a high-ranking White Sox official, The Sun reported in Tuesday's edition that Konerko has an arthritic hip condition. One Orioles official said the club is aware of the condition, which was apparently diagnosed years ago, but isn't deeply concerned. The White Sox aren't making any official comment on Konerko's hip, but one club official privately told the Chicago Tribune that the team was upset that the information had become public."

What scares me about the Sun article is that he still went to CA and talked to the Angels. If this was really a done deal, why would he bother? I find it hard to believe it was out of courtesy.

I am far too paranoid about this. I won't believe it until I hear him say he is back at his press conference.

Bargaining position. You don't reject all offers and visits while trying to negotiate or you'll find yourself getting a horrible deal. Konerko (or Landis really) only needs one team with deep pockets that he can use to help negotiate with the Sox. If Konerko and Landis have the Sox believing that they consider Anaheim a legitimate option, and the feeling is reciprocated, then they are in great position to negotiate a fair deal with the Sox.

The Twins will absolutely be god awful. They have no offense and they are losing Jacque Jones. They are starting 2 rookie pitchers also. Nathan lost a ton a steam last year also. Sorry to semi-hijack the thread. I just had to say this.

Back to Konerko:
I don't like this just because my hopes are now so high that it would be too awful to have them shot down now. All the offers seem to be around the same money and it is SOOO encouraging that he turned down the O's offer.

I hope we can keep the guys we got for at least another year, after that it will be tough beyond their expiring contracts. God willing we can sign Jon long term and with the minors leguers we hope to have up in the next few years not have to worry about payroll for a while.

I remember reading about it when he first got traded to the sox for Cameron. It seemed kind of like an "oh, what the heck" deal at the time with both him and Cameron coming off of pathetically disappointing seasons. Most of the hip talk had to do with him not being a catcher anymore like he used to be, and also about him being a slow runner. Didn't he actually even play some LF with the Dodgers or Reds?

Actually, turning down the offer and making it public could be used for leverage as what some teams will be willing to pay him. I know the Dodgers want him back and with the constant sellouts they can easily afford him. It can be seen either way, but to me it's more of a 'check out what they think I'm worth, let it echo and resonate throughout your ears.'

11-30-2005, 12:31 AM
If he's not going to play for us, I see him going to Anaheim. He can be a 1B and see some DH too. The Sox have the perfect situation for him. He and Thome can switch at DH and 1B. Hopefully Thome's conversation was like "I'll buy you a steak for every home run you hit here." Honestly though...even after taxes and agent fees, etc...there's not a huge difference between a $13 or $14 mil per year deal...especially when you can get nice WS bonuses and playoff MVP bonuses. We could even throw in...$250,000 or so for a WS mvp...$150,000 for an ALCS mvp or ALDS mvp.

I agree. I will believe it when all the "i's" are dotted and "T's" are crossed and also when the ink is dry!

At least this is a step in the right direction. If this is true, with Konerko and Thome in the same line up, it could lead to World Champion Chicago White Sox part 2.

That depends on what happens to Konerko!

If Konerko returns, my gut feeling is El Duque, but not for a while. The central organizing principle is starting pitching, and KW has managed to avoid touching the rotation for a while.

If Konerko leaves, there will be a chain reaction that probably means all of them stay, because the White Sox will sign several lower-tier guys to play off for the Carl Everett role and will be structurally unable to carry 12 pitchers; this would mean El Duque/McCarthy as swingmen... just a hunch.

11-30-2005, 08:38 AM
At some point, the Angels are going to make this come down to a money decision. Unless, of course, they are just doing this for show to apease their fans. But if they really want him, they can't just sell him on California, and they certainly are in no better position to win than we are. They're going to have to outbid the Sox with an offer at 5/65 perhaps with incentive potential to 70. Then we'll see what's important to PK.

Jayson Stark had some nice comments on Mike and Mike this morning. He said he sees Paulie coming back. He said if the money's close there's no way he leaves. He cited a lot of the reasons that have been brought up on this board to support his answer (popularity in the city, etc.). He also said he's from Philly and Jim Thome has a lot of productivity left in him. Greeny asked if he could hit 45 homers in Comiskey and Stark said he thinks so, going so far as to say "Jim Thome is capable of having a humongous year in that park, humongous." He also said he didn't see Frank coming back.

Take that as you will. I usually don't put a lot of stock in these predictions, unless it's something I want to hear.

You know, I'm beginning to think that Paulie really doesn't care if he comes back to the Sox or not. More importantly, I don't think I care either. If he signs, that's great. If he doesn't, we'll push for another big bat and resign Frank Thomas (something that will almost certainly not happen if Paulie comes back).

I won't believe anything until the contract is signed. Turning down the O's offer says there are more factors than money. I want him back, but I won't get upset or teary eyed if he signs elsewhere. I don't think he's worth the contract he's going to get. However, more power to him to whatever amount he gets.

If they are all similar offers and the Sox are willing to go to 5 years, then he would be an idiot to go elsewhere. He is not going to get the endorsement money in another city that he will get here.

Can you imagine him doing a commercial in LA? No freaking way...

In Chicago his endorsement money should easily surpass $1M/year. He is a known face and is coming off of an MVP caliber performance both regular and post season. He'll be doing McD's ads before you know it...

You know, I'm beginning to think that Paulie really doesn't care if he comes back to the Sox or not. More importantly, I don't think I care either. If he signs, that's great. If he doesn't, we'll push for another big bat and resign Frank Thomas (something that will almost certainly not happen if Paulie comes back).

Deuce
I'm actually starting to lean this way also. The last thing the Sox need is a contract hanging over thier heads with someone who has been known to have marginal years. If it's all about money, then oh well. We don't need an anchor contract that will effect this club for a half a decade. It's very scarey.

Sorry but I refuse to call any stadium by its corporate name and I felt the same when when I was doing the sports on TV in three markets.

Now when U.S. Cellular, or Cynergy or Minute Maid start paying me to give out free endorsements of their company by saying their names during highlights then I'll be happy too.

Lip,
I think it's a different era. Personally, I hate getting bombarded with all the advertising that goes with all the corporate names. On the other hand, many of the old names were just power trips for the owners (Comiskey, Wrigley and Turner come to mind) and I'd never have supported that either. I do believe the era of too many Municipal Stadiums is gone with good riddance. I don't think we can have enough Veterans Fields, War Memorial Stadiums or Soldier Fields however.

In the meantime two thoughts. USCF is named as it is, I will call it that. Second, it could be worse, would you attend a game at Reinsdorf Park?

LipI felt much the same way when they first sold the naming rights. But the money paid for extensive remodelling, which made a HUGE difference in how the place looks and feels. They wouldn't have that if not for the $60M from the naming rights, so I guess I'm OK with it now.

Me too. I still refer to that North Side stadium as Weeghman Park.

I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to make an anti-US Cellular or "I still call it Comiskey" statement. On the show they kept referring to US Cellular Field as "that park." I didn't mean to offend anyone. At least I didn't call it "The Joan."
