I just think that being an athlete is a unique job, traveling during half the year and then being off for a few months in the offseason.
I am not sure about Konerko or the ages of his kids. I know if I had the money these guys have, my family would live in the city where I play and in the permanent residence in the off season. Of course ages of kids would change this but at the ages of 3 and 5, I would want them in the city where I play.
