Not questioning why he's still cashing the checks, just stating the (obvious) that Konerko has been god awful this season, probably one of the 3-4 worst players in the AL.
I get that the Sox are loyal, sometimes to a fault, but they're not outright deranged. They've let other popular players walk before, usually before they completely bottom out. 0% chance Konerko's White Sox playing career extends past this weekend.
