Default Hahn: Spot open on Sox roster for Konerko if he wants Update: He does and is


Hopefully a decision and the right one is made soon on this.

Yeah it's PK, but I'm not really a fan of offering a roster spot to the 2013 AL LVP.

I'm on the fence on this one.
Batting in the second position for the White Sox, number 2, the second baseman Nelson Fox.

I've got absolutely zero evidence to back this up, but I just have a feeling that Paul isn't COMPLETELY done yet. They probably won't contend this year, but I doubt it'll be as horrible as 2013, either. Let him have his farewell tour, he deserves better than whatever the hell 2013 was.

For the record, that's just me being sentimental. I'd welcome him back for another year, but it won't be the end of the world if it's time to move on.

I'm OK with this- in all likelihood they will do everything they can to unload Adam Dunn as soon as they can- which will open up DH ABs for Paulie- I'd want him as the DH vs. LHs anyway.

Clogs up the bench a little bit- but he's one of the top White Sox players of my lifetime- so I don't mind one more year of his influence in the locker room.

This also clearly leaves the ball in PKs court- so if he DOES decide to retire- there's not controversy, etc.

I'm a little biased towards keeping veterans like this around- even when Fisk was REALLY bad in 1993- I still thought they were a better team with him on the roster- than they were after releasing him in Cleveland.
Players that are an important part of the rebuild:
Anderson, Giolito, Lopez, Moncada

Great - 3 guys who can only play first or DH.
Ventura at manager.
It all fits together.

If the Sox can perform magic and get rid of Dunn, Im ok with this. If not I'm seeing a lineup of PK/Abreu dh, 1b, beckham 2nd. ramirez ss, keppinger 3rd, dunn lf, a. garcia cf, viciedo rf, who cares, behind plate. One of the worst defensive and slowest teams I can think of. Finally, if Paul signs a deal with the Sox this year it wont be to do a Smoky Burgess role and for the people that think dunn will platoon, 15M wont sit on the Sox bench.

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. - A.

You don't sign guys for what they have done for you, you sign guys for what they can do for you, and in PK's case, that's not much anymore. I will gladly eat crow though if he ends up staying and has a great season, but I am not seeing it.

Though I know this is completely illogical and possibly counterproductive, I don't give a damn; I want Paulie back.
And on the 8th day, God created churros.

That's how I feel about this. Logically, I think he is done and want to see him walk away and not have another year where he embarrasses himself like he did this year but I don't want to see him on another team either. I hope he walks away but if he wants to come back, I think I would want to see him with us as a bench player.

Go Sox!!!

If Paul signs, I would say that means Adam shouldn't start his car with the door closed
