If we don't have a lot of flexibility in payroll, we may have to bring back Jim if he's willing to come back at a very reduced rate.

I wouldn't mind signing Nick Johnson to play 1B. Would love to get some of LA young pitching talent for Konerko

Where does Konerko play? Loney is a much better all around ball player. It makes no sense for the LAD. I hear PK can play some 3b...

This is Bruce Levine reporting, therefore it is only about 15% accurate.

He shows his ignorance by claiming Konerko has a "complete no trade clause" in his contract. Konerko is a 5/10 player, the NTC is not needed anymore and, therefore, is irrelevant.

Let us know when something newsworthy is said.

Please no. We already failed with that team this year.

Levine is another guy that's understating Pods worth. No way Pod signs a 1 year contract with an option. He knows this is probably his last chance for a payday and will get more than that.

What a moron! How could make such as major error like that?

I'd actually like to see Konerko in a Sox uniform in 2010. I know I'm probably in the minority.

He actually had a very solid year. I'd like to have him back as long as Dye is gone, which he probably is.

I do not think you need to worry, as I see no realistic chance that he gets traded. He just isnt a good fit to the teams he would likely waive his no-trade clause to.

Then so am I, because I'd like to see Paul Konerko finish his career with the Sox.

I realize this may be the minority opinion here, but there it is. I know he's slow on the basepaths, but many sluggers are. He plays first very well, and could easily have been the MVP of the 2005 Series.

Keep him until the end of his career.

I missed where the guy who hit .249/.372/.493 for us and .253/.413/.985 with RISP was at fault.
