Is the really bad just the last 9 games when he's hitting .229 with no extra base hits? That's a pretty small sample size.
There was a post-break period where Konerko at least gave an occasional impression that he was a Major League hitter. He was hitting some balls hard, mostly singles to center and right. Lately, it's been a victory if he hits a soft single just over the infield. Yes, he's had a handful of those hits this month, but his "dangerous" factor at that the plate is currently at an all-time low. Even his fly outs are seldom deep. Hey, it happens to the best of them. I just hope he can be honest with himself.
What's interesting is nobody really knows what's going to happen. That's probably because Konerko and Hahn don't even know at the moment.
