Konerko - slow starter?

I think Pauly's back may be bothering him. I don't think it's public knowledge but he is definitely playing with pain and pressing up at the plate. I love my Sox but I can see him on the DL for the first time in his career. Just my 2 cents, something to look into.

Just watch him do well on the first day I decide to bench him (vs Meche).


You have to just risk it. I had the same feeling yesterday, but I benched him for Renteria at UTIL, and suffice it to say, Renteria is going to be playing instead for the foreseeable future.

Yea I wish I had Renteria to fill his shoes. I get to put in the next guy who will have a thread like this one. Richie Sexson. :-o

Yeah 2003 was bad, but that was 4 years ago and he didn't have near as good of a lineup around him. He's had bad months littering his career and the difference between him hitting .313 last year and .283 the year before was how many of those he has.

If you expected and counted on .310 + when you drafted him, then you should worry. Those of you that drafted him for a .280 - .290 BA and 35-40 HR shouldn't worry much. I'd just bench him now if you have another alternative. If Sheffield serves as your backup 1B, welcome to the crub !+)
