I'll be sure to run my posts by you so you can decide if they're "useful".

Especially considering he may retire after the season.
Even if he goes somewhere else for two months to try and win he will still come back and probably retire (even if it's a one day contract) as a White Sox. I see no harm in letting him go, and even possibly get a low level minor league player for him. It will save another $3.5M that can be used for the coming offseason (for Abreu ) or for scouting/development. Considering how everyone around here was so gung ho about dumping contracts, I don't see any difference with Konerko. I'd rather see him go to a team that has a shot at the playoffs than play out the string on a really bad Sox team. He'll always be welcomed back and cheered on Paul Konerko day at the park.

While the original title of this thread was poorly worded I have to agree that the news that PK has been submitted for the waiver wire deserves it's own thread. He's been the captain of the team and a Sox fixture for a long time. He'll have his own statue (of him handing "the ball" to JR) one of these days.

To be fair, Buddy Bell admitted last week that he "doesn't really know how this waiver wire stuff works."

Our assistant GM, folks!

So you can forgive a fan if he is similarly confused.

I apologize for being insensitive, however you did lead off a post with a wildly misleading title stating that Paulie was waived, which is not the case.

I very much doubt this was the first time this has happened with him. Generally a large majority of players are submitted to the waiver wire simply as a procedural move in August.

This. Often times teams will put several players on waivers at the same time in order to either gauge interest in players or to try and hide someone that they already have agreed to move.

Not necessarily.

It could've easily been a situation where Rosenthal was checking up with a good source (from any team) in baseball who was just updating him on 'bigger' names the source saw go on to waivers in the last few days. It's not like putting a guy through waivers is a big secret to anyone in the league.

I'm sorry, are people actually out there believing there is a market for expensive, aging players who currently can't hit, can't field, and can't stay healthy?

I think the PK question the Sox will face is how to use him in the last month, with players to develop and still trying to win games.

I for one would be happy to see Pauly finish out his career playing for a contender. I would also like to make sure all of Frank's team records stay intact.
