That said, it's not like Konerko's been lighting the world on fire, either. .225/.279/.378 isn't exactly a bat you need to find room for no matter what.
True, but even with those subpar numbers, Konerko is no worse than the fourth-best hitter in the everyday lineup.

For most clubs, a player with that slash line would be among the weaker hitters on the team. For this club, it's about the mean.

Sad days.
