I just want to go ahead and get this one out there, for whenever the Sox season ends. If the Sox win the World Series, here's your Tribune headline for the next morning:

Sox fail to sign slugger as season ends

CHICAGO-- Another season in the books, another Sox star getting ready to pack his bags for bigger and better things. It's a shame Konerko's tenure in Chicago had to end like this, winning the World Series, when it could've been so much more if the Sox just ponied up the cash.

"All I wanted was to get to the World Series one time. One time. I didn't care how I got there. I'm here with these guys in body, mind and spirit. People say it's bittersweet. It's not bittersweet. It's only sweet."
