I understand both sides, but I think (much like last year) we can afford to pay a guy $7 mil for a vet that has '05 ties. That might not be smart business, but it does play well for the fans. Most casual fans would rather see a PK farewell tour than have a new guy at 1st that no one knows.
I didn't want to see Frank play for another city and it happened. I know the situations are different but nonetheless watching a fan favorite play on another team happens all the time.
IF we could get rid of Dunn then I would be all for Konerko staying but Dunn is not going anywhere. This team, as it currently stands, does not have room for Konerko. If he stays, I wont be upset and I really hope they don't pay him anywhere close to the $ 7MIL. $ 2-3 MIL tops. If he thinks he is worth more then that, let him taste free agency.
