Paul Konerko talks hit a snag over Konerko’s $15 million demands? [UPDATE #2]

Cowley @ CST tweets:

Could be a snag in Konerko talks. Source said that so far Konerko’s camp is adamant about $15 m per. That would crush the payroll for relief

Also, yesterday, Heyman @ SI tweeted:

chisox, konerko talks appear to be going well. he’ll likely get $12.5 mil a year, maybe 3 yrs. rangers, orioles other options.

But today Heyman @ SI tweeted:

rangers, focused on Cliff Lee, “not likely” to get konerko. paul’s friend says “no way” on orioles. chisox in drivers seat

So, there doesn’t seem to be a big market for Konerko. If it was me, I don’t think I’d give him $15 million a year. I don’t want a couple Mike McDougal’s on the team next year.

UPDATE: Garfein @ CSN tweets:

If PK wants $15 mil a year, Kenny Williams said Monday: “Teams have options. I don’t know if he will get to the level he originally hoped for.”

UPDATE #2: Ballentini @ CSN tweets:

Rough guesses at 1B: Plan A: Paul Konerko B: Carlos Pena C: Adam LaRoche D: Derrek Lee E: Dayan Viciedo

Heyman @ SI:

chisox like prince fielder but have discussed dunn, laroche and berkman, in that order, as possible 2nd choices

Hang up if they ask for Danks, Floyd, Hudson or Beckham, Kenny. Not for a 2 month rental. Not for Fielder too since he’ll probably cost 2 of those.

Stats from B-R: Fielder, Dunn, Laroche, Berkman

Other possibilities: Scott, Branyan
