    Congrats to Konerko, He's a icon here on the Southside,

      Nellie Fox, a White sox player from 1950 to 1963 and 2nd in games in White Sox franchise history, is Konerko's next target at 2115 games. That's definitely reachable for Paul by the middle of the 2013 season.
      Trivia: Nellie Fox's first season with the White Sox, 1950, was also the final season of all-time leader, Luke Appling's White sox and mlb career. Appling played 2322 games for Chicago.

        what's up with his power? only 14 HRs so far this year so he is on pace for just 25 or so.
        I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

          Konerko seems to have much more of a line drive than an uppercut stroke going this year. He's maintained a high average all year, but hit most of his home runs in spurts early in the year.

            He's playing with a jammed finger. I think thats hurt his production lately.

              Considering all the hype surrounding him back in the mid-90s, he's basically gone rather unnoticed by the general public. He's been a fixture for the Sox - and a highly productive one at that.

                His career war is very low but he does come through in the clutch alot. I remember when Albert Belle came to the Sox he had a monster year but he always hit his homeruns it seemed in blowouts. Konerko while not having anything like the year Belle had always seems to do the right thing at the right time.

                  Gotta love Paulie. What a great example of a very good player on and off the field. He has come through in the clutch so many times.

                  I still think of his grand slam during the 05 WS. So dramatic.

                    Wait how did that happen? I still think of Konerko as that up and coming prospect for Los Angeles... I hate getting old.

                      He's the last one left from the 2005 team.

                        I read on Bleacher Report that before the Sox hired Ventura, they were actually considering hiring Konerko as player/manager. Anybody know more about this? From what I know about Konerko, it doesn't seem like something he would want to do.
                        They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                          I remember Kenny Williams talking about it and your right Konerko wasn't up for it. I'm guessing Williams was going into rebuild mode and he was trying to do anything that may bring fans in during a possible bad year.

                              WPA is a stat that measures the timeliness of hits.

                              http://www.fangraphs.com/library/index.php/misc/wpa/

                              As a White Sox Thomas has 2.54 WPA in 1407 PA's. That's 1.26 WPA/700 PA's
                              In his career Konerko has 14.07 WPA in 8761 PA's. That's 1.12 WPA/700 PA's

                              No evidence that Konerko was more clutch that Thomas. The opposite, in fact.
