I don't believe his wrist issues affected him as much as people make them out to.
If they did, that's also part of the same problem. Aging sluggers don't age well because their bodies can't cope.
Torii Hunter is not even close to a good example of a similar player, and if Torii Hunter doesn't play a game this season, it wouldn't have the same effect on the Tigers as Konerko not having an MVP season would have on our roster.
