Postby Chuckd05 » Sun May 25, 2008 9:12 pm

Konerko has been held out with a hand injury that has bothered him for some time now.. any news outta Chicago whether or not he will be back tomorrow (monday) ? And is he worth a start for next week

my only other options are Ian Stewart and Melvin Mora at my CI spot so im torn at what to do... any help would be appreciated....

Konerko did play Monday night but he was 0-6 and left 5 RISP. He did have a couple shots that could have been home runs but one was to deep center and another, late in the game tied 3-3, that hooked foul in left I think so he is driving the ball. The Sox have played a disproportionate amount of games on the road so far this year. Beginning June 3rd, they play 23 of their next 32 games at home with three of those road games at Wrigley and three at Detroit, so 29 of 32 in hitters' parks. If he doesn't start hitting during this span, then he probably won't hit at all this year.

Yeah he's been brutal. But he started slow last year and in the past. The avg isn't gonna be there anymore, but the power should be. His hand has been bothering him, so I'm concerned about that. I'm hoping he gets hot in June, and then I'm gonna try and get what I can for him.

steroids?

This guy is beyond awful. He shouldn't be anwhere near a starting lineup unless you are in an AL only or huge mixed league.

Heh, I have wondered that myself actually, such a drastic drop-off since the roids scandal broke. Canseco did roll through that clubhouse in 2001. Lucky for Paulie that he had his breakout season in 1999 and not 2001. :D

Agreed. Why wait for someone like that to improve when you can grab someone who is getting it done? Too many players out there.
