Default Konerko to have wrist surgery

Heard it on The Score this morning. He will do it "as soon as possible."

So, the truth has come out. His wrist was never right after the "cleaning" it had earlier this season. We suspected this given the fall-off in his performance.

May as well bench him now, or at least after today.

To his credit he never used it as an excuse and honestly who knows how much it was a factor? Only PK I'm sure.

His OPS dropped about 200 points after April/May (surgery timing)-

I'm not a doctor or a psychic but IMO Paul was playing hurt for a long time. He just couldn't drive the ball like he would have been able if healthy.

This is a testament to Konerko's professionalism. He didn't pull a JD Drew and sit out half the season. The guy felt he could play through it and gave it his best shot.

What was his VORP when he was a singles hitter in the cleanup spot? Gutting it out in this case = hurting the team. But he didn't bat himself 4th or put his name on the lineup card every day, did he?

Ventura ****ed this thing up so badly.

There was not reason for him to ride Dunn/Konerko 3 and 4 from start to finish if things werer broke.

Think of how many more games possibly they could have won had AJ hit 3rd and Rios 4th the entire 2nd half.
