Konerko?

Postby atticus » Sun Apr 22, 2007 9:10 pm

Good God man! What is wrong with this guy? He was hitting below the Mendoza line before today's game in which he went O-fer six including three strikeouts, an inning ending double play and didn't hit a ball out of the infield.

Anyone heard anything about what's wrong with him? I'm about to bench him for the upcoming week to start Corey Hart :-P (I know he's only platooning, but I don't have anyone better in my reserves).

he's really streaky.....it seems like any time he hits a home run he hits 2 in a game.

Konerko has been like this his entire career. Some seasons he's had almost a half season like this and then turned it around big time. He always ends up with good power numbers. Hang on, he'll turn it around eventually in a big way.
I've stayed away from him in the draft in the past because of his streakiness but, because he's been a little more consistent the past couple years, I went ahead and drafted him this season. His struggles so far are no suprise, though.

Konerko has always been a slow starter. From June on he is gold. Don't drop him, you will regret it. he will hit 35-45 hrs, hit 285-310 and have over 100 rbis and score about 90 runs. Bank it

I have owned him the last 2 years and have won my money league both years.

Normally I'd agree and say Paulie is just going through one of his infamous streaks... BUT.... I've been to a couple of game this year and I've gotta say that Konerko looks like hell at the plate. He just doesn't look like the same player. His swing looks slow.

I had PK last year and let the streaks ride. But I agree that this year seems different. Can't put my finger on it, but he doesn't look smooth at the plate.

I was just offered Teix for Konerko, and will likely take the trade.

Teix is a more notorious slow starter. Teix never does well in the spring. I think he has more upside than Pauly, but Pauly is a lock for decent numbers. He is not near as streaky as Teix.
