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 (I know he's only platooning, but I don't have anyone better in my reserves).
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.
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.
