I was touting this guy as underrated during 05 but now it seems he is way overrated.

5 years for $65M???

That is way too much money for Konerko but the ChiSox desperately need to bring him back, LAA has shown interested and Boston has shown interest.

I doubt he gets 13 mil a season. I could see 10 though. :-°

The ChiSox need to resign him. He may not be worth that money but he will get it.

I don't understand why LAA would be interested. THey have a ton of 1B/DH guys, Erstad, Kotchman, Morales to name a few...

Got me. They could use another hitter and the new owner likes to spend money. Erstad isn't the option though.

Kotchman could be the 1B, though. I guess they realized the McPherson experiment was a disaster and they don't want to make the same mistake on the other corner infield spot.

I wouldn't call McPherson an experiment or a disaster. He was just injured.

well i just heard (dan patrick show) we are close to shipping rowand to the phils for thome. could be a small bargaining chip to get konerko for a little less money. i still want to resign him of course but it will be interesting to see how things shape up with this deal going down.
