Paul Konerko, 1B, White Sox – Suddenly surfacing on a few teams’ trade lists, the 33-year-old is having a nice year with 12 homers, 46 RBIs, and a .292 average in the next-to-last year of his contract, which calls for a $12 million payment. He’s also a 10-5 player who must OK a deal. The Giants would seem to be the ideal spot, but one problem: White Sox general manager Kenny Williams still feels his team can win the AL Central. That’s why he is holding on to Konerko, Jermaine Dye, Bobby Jenks, Octavio Dotel, and Scott Linebrink. Williams still has a month before the trade deadline to make decisions.
Go for it Kenny!
