Paulie also missed time with a bad back this year too. Konerko is getting up there in age now and I'm beginning to wonder if his body can handle the daily grind as a position starter. I wonder if the Sox would consider moving Paulie into the full time DH role next season? Dunn was competent at 1B this year and a DH switch could theoretically keep Paulie healthier and more offensively productive.
