He hit <.200 in 3 of 6 months in 2013-
Of the 15 DH's in the AL- Dunn was ranked 13th-
Just because he didn't suck as bad in 2012 and 2013 as he did in 2011- doesn't mean he didn't suck-
Really fans should have been more upset with the Dunn signing than this thread would have you believe they are about the Konerko signing, especially considering the terms. And if you go back to the Dunn-signing-day thread, only a scant few of us were.
The anger in this thread rivals the anger over not signing Frank Thomas after a season in which he couldn't even play in 40 games, and the White Sox won the World Series without him.
I like the Konerko signing at the terms of the Konerko signing, especially for Abreu's first year in American baseball. It isn't a big move, but for what it is, I think it's a good baseball move.
