They should make the statue for Konerko like two stories tall.

Shouldn't it be 15,000 inches tall as a scale model of his greatness?

Paul Konerko is currently 4th in the Majors in fWAR, behind Josh Hamilton, David Wright, and Adam Jones. He has the third highest wOBA and wRC+, behind only Hamilton and Kemp.

 

NEVER FORGET

I remember last year (before the season started) someone had said with Konerko and Dunn in the lineup, it was a perfect set-up for Donkey Kong. Obviously with Dunn's season last year, that wasn't a reality. I'm surprised no one has brought it up this year, yet.

 

Sounds like an opportunity for someone to do some art...

Or at least use the Donkey (Eddie Murphy) from Shrek with Konerko's towering statue/Scottsdale home pic.

If the Sox win tonight, and the Yankees and Blue Jays lose, the Sox will be in the 2nd wildcard spot with Toronto.

He should have a 16,000 sq foot park where his 16000 foot monument stands in the middle.

I've kind of retired from the wallpaper making since my original photoshop program died with my old computer.

 

However, I do have something in mind that I hope to get out there by the All-Star break.

 

Stay tuned.

Very nice. He is one with super high upside.

If Paulie hits .261 the rest of the reason (assuming 545 ABs), he will finish the season at .300. Wow. He's set himself up well, lol.

So can we talk about the new fireworks? I seriously don't know what's up with the green things they shoot off that form an x for every home run now. What happened to the old just regular fireworks.

In last 12 games, White Sox are #1 in majors in average, runs, home runs, slugging %, RISP average, and extra base hits.

 

The White Sox have hit 12 home runs in the last 4 games. The Padres have 18 homers for the whole season.

Sox are now 9th in runs per game in MLB. 6th in the AL.

The week ahead:

 

M: Sale vs Moore

T: Humber vs Shields

W: Quintana vs Cobb

 

F: King Felix vs Peavy

S: Noesi vs Floyd

S: Millwood vs Sale

 

Good chance Sox will miss Romero when the Jays come to town. They could be skipping Drabek so Romero faces the Red Sox.

 

Looking at the Cardinals/Dodgers week, it could be some tough pitching Garcia, Wainwright, and Lynn is a possibility, followed by Kershaw.

Sale and Moore will be a really good matchup.

 

Moore's had issues getting out of the 5th inning this year. Humber better come out and have his stuff, Shields is tough. Cobb and Quintana seems like a wash.

What's the early VEGAS over/under for RUNS SCORED in the Noesi/Floyd match-up, lol?

 

Probably be a 1-0 shutout by one team or the other.

 

Kind of sucks that Humber won't get to face the M's again when he has so much confidence going against them. Then again, they'd probably be keyed up to face him and win 7-0 going away, baseball's strange like that.
