Ringolsby @ MLBB:

[Arizona GM Kevin] Towers had extended talks with the agent for Paul Konerko, hoping to convince the free-agent first baseman to sign with the Diamondbacks instead of returning to the Chicago White Sox.

Dyck @ CT says, besides Arizona, other Konerko suitors are Texas and Baltimore.

Morosi @ FS tweets that Jerry Reinsdorf didn’t like that:

Reinsdorf on Konerko: “He belongs in Chicago.”

Padilla @ ESPN says Reinsdorf will do everything he can to keep Konerko:

A source has indicated that Reinsdorf is ready and willing to do whatever he can to keep Paul Konerko on the White Sox roster, and by the end of the first day of the winter meetings Monday, in the shadow of Disney World, he just might feel like he is in the happiest place on Earth.

And don’t miss the Godfather reference in Padilla’s article!

UPDATE: Garfein @ CSN tweets Arizona is “reportedly making big push.

Olney @ ESPN tweets:

Heard this: The D-backs have had virtually no dialogue with Konerko.
