Well, at least I benched him for Renteria yesterday so I can consider 1 of those 2 HRs irrelevant, but hot damn. He's going back in the lineup tomorrow.

His sub mendoza line avg is driving me crazy.

I hope he is off to a horrible start and it is not a sign for a horrible year :(

I drafted him because i felt he was a safe pick for 30HR 100RBI's :(

He'll reach 30 HR and 100 RBI. It's the average worth being concerned over. I drafted him expecting .280+ average.

His avg was trending upward the last few years so a 280+ could've been expected. But I kinda have to agree w/ Ravitz at ESPN where he says that Konerko looks as lost at the plate as he did in 2003 where he only hit .234 w/ 18 HR. That's not what I drafted at all!

Watched Konerko on the Fox GotW on Saturday and he looked absolutely horrible at the plate. Lost is a good description. I don't have a back-up 1B, but I'm thinking of benching him just to avoid the hit on AVG and OPS.

I was hoping the 2HR game was the start of something good, but he slid right back into the slump.

Come PK! :-o
