Paul Konerko. what's wrong?

Postby SpecialFNK » Mon Jun 03, 2013 8:57 am

I wanted to see if anyone knows anything about what could be wrong with Konerko.
some deeper numbers suggest he should not be this bad.

13- 7.6 BB%. 12- 9.4 BB%

13- 16.9 K%. 12- 13.9 K%

13- .240 AVG. 12- .298 AVG.

13- .264 BABIP. 12- .312 BABIP.

13- 26.8 LD%. 12- 22.3 LD%

13- 44.3 FB%. 12- 36.5 FB%

13- 5 HR (so far). 12- 26

13- 7.6 HR/FB. 12- 15.8 HR/FB.

he should have more HR, and he should have a higher AVG.
he's driving the ball good. he's getting good fly balls. yet he has a low AVG and low HR.
should one be patient? or is this just the way he is now? am I missing something?

...not a very athletic 37 year old...I'd say he lasted longer than most would have guessed.

Laid back with his mind on retirement and playing golf daily on his mind? :*)

Thinking (hoping?) he's got one more hot streak left. ;-7

age is the first thing that came to my mind. but looking at his numbers, it doesn't seem like he should be struggling. with a LD% that high, wouldn't that mean he is getting a good swing and that his swing isn't slowing down because of age?
could his age be a factor in not being able to hit fly balls as far? even though his LD% is great, and his FB% is high, with his age he might not be hitting fly balls far enough, and maybe that is why the HR/FB is down?
