Nope. Drop "my wife" and see what looks right, "me" or "I." In this case, "I" looks wrong alone.

The only player on the team, that is involved defensively in every pitch of the game is an overrated position? I really dont think so but to each his own.

No. "You welcomed my wife." "You welcomed me." "You welcomed my wife and me."

It's hard to believe you won't be behind the WS plate again. (What were they thinking?!!) You're the smartest player in baseball & will be missed more than you know. I hope you'll be back someday, if not as a player, as a coach. Meanwhile, you deserve to be honored with a food stand at the Cell - Pierzynski's Pierogi's seems fitting for both you and Chicago!

As for me, I'll take Ron Karkovice every day of the week.

Wish the Sox had kept you, AJ! We're going to miss your heads-up plays.

I fondly recall the "Punch AJ" all-star voting campaign.

Dude is going to turn 50 this August and hasn't played in 16 years, you sure?

lol. Okay, let me rephrase. I'll take the equivalent of circa '93 era Ron Karkovice every day of the week. Happy? :

Devastated to learn that A.J. was a North Sider all along. Nice crib for sale in Lincoln Park.

I'm pretty sure Konerko is a North Sider as well, I believe he mentioned living blocks away from Wrigley.

Konerko used to have a mansion in the Palos Park (almost Lemont) area but he sold it a few years ago and bought a home in AZ.
