I'd be doing worse than that. How'd you ever manage that? He's gonna be Mini-Pujols in a few weeks, might even out HR him this year.

LMAO tgh

Yeah, I drafted Paul, then dropped him for Aubrey, and I love it.

This isn't a slump. It's been more than 2 months and he still sucks. If you have room on your roster to hold on to one of the worst fantasy guys in the league, then sure, keep him and keep on praying. Make your stew or whatever. Eventually, come the end of July, the truth shall set you free, and then you will set Konerko free, like you should have done months ago!

Okay, so it is not working too well right now.

Since this post, Paul is 1 for his last 14(.071) with 1 BB and 2 K's.

But I have 2 other 1B that I can use until he gets it going, whcih I know he will.

He is too good not to.

Konerko went 0 for 3 today with a walk.

so now, he is 1 for 17(.058), 2 BB, 2 K's since this post was created.

He's hitting .198 on the season.

The thing is Konerko is hitting the ball, he is just hitting it right at someone. I mean he has 18 BB's and has only 20 K's in 177 AB's, so it's not like he has a ton of K's to go along with the slump.

(Spice)? Yes, spice! That is what I left out of the recipe. I knew I left out something.

(cincy, adds 1 tsp of spice)

Now he's ready!

;-D

Ugh. Konerko is so bad he's losing his job during interleague play to Frank Thomas, the worst 1B this side of Cecil Fielder. Give up on him now.

ha. the best thing about paul konerko was that i was able to trade him early (2-3 weeks into the season) for woody williams... straightup.

there's one born every minute. now if they could all play in a league with me.
