Default Konkerko Quote on All-Star Pods

"I think there's a lot of Yankee fans and also a lot of people who hate the Yankees. It could be not there's a lot of Podsednik fans, but there are a lot of people who hate Derek Jeter and the Yankees in general."

Paul might be right, but why even bring it up. Can't he just say something good about how Podsednik might actually deserve the spot?

Sheesh

Konerko needs some Immodium AD for his diarrhea of the mouth...

I think the point is that he doesn't seem to think about the further ramifications of what he's saying before he opens his mouth. I think reporters are baiting him at this point, and he just walks into traps. He could've simply said that he was really proud of Scotty. Instead he responded to some question about people voting against Jeter.

As much as we all love paulie, you have to admit that we probably gained alot of votes from boston fans once Scott was declared as being a close second.


Can't blame the guy for telling the truth.

It's not that he's actively dissing Scott, he just has a habit of saying things which remain best left unsaid. His nickname used to be "Hollywood" for a reason. He's a ham in front of a camera or tape recorder.

sure i can.

how about not saying stupid **** that is a backhanded slap at your teammates, intentional or not.

most of us follow this thought process: think, speak.

paulie seems to follow this chain of command: speak, then WE think about what in the **** did he actually just say???

And yet he's incredibly boring when he's interviewed. I never remember what he says unless it's something like this quote where he's insulting his teammates.

I don't think this is a big deal. However, Konerko would be advised to watch what he says, given what's happened with him in the past.

Way to selectively pull quotes. Let's look at what Konerko said in its entirety.
Quote:
"When your team's going well and you're in first place, it brings out your fans," Konerko said. "I think there's some sentiment that there are a lot of Yankees fans, but there are also a lot of people that hate the Yankees. It could be not that there are a lot of Podsednik fans, but a lot of people that hate Derek Jeter and hate the Yankees in general.

"Fans are good with all the voting this year. All the players that are in starting positions deserve to be starters. I guess they took responsibility and made good choices, not just popularity."
Good job pulling out the one piece you could overreact on.
