Who the hell is Paul Konerko?

it is a reflection of their manager. folks want to focus on gomez (recall the thread a while back) but ron wants everyone running like their pants are on fire at all times. for every highlight reel play where a team breaks down and throws the ball away milwaukee runs into multiple easy outs for the opposition
I watch the Brewers a lot, mostly by choice and frequently because of questionable company. But, the Brewers might be the dumbest baserunning team I've ever watched.
(iirc they had Jeff Samardzija present it to him)
I wish I was somewhere that I could actually watch this Mariners game.
Thanks, but er, I actually did know who he was, and if I were a White Sox fan I'd be wanting to give him a major sendoff.
I see our friend Blown Save showed up.
The Texas teams used to have a dispensation to play Sunday night games at home (pointlessly in the case of Houston, since they've been indoors for fifty years). I wish those days would return.
The Yankees played a tribute to Konerko on their video board before Sunday’s game against the Sox, and Jeter then presented Konerko with a base signed by the team. The moment was particularly special to Konerko because the first major league game he attended when he was 6 years old was a Yankees game. “As far as the whole retirement thing, it's the highlight of the year for me so far,” said Konerko, who was born in Rhode Island. “(The Yankees were) all I ever knew as a kid. The fact that I'm getting a gift for something I did on the field in all the time between then and now is mind-boggling. You just don't think about things like that.
“A classy move by them. You don't expect it, and to have Derek out there as the guy giving it to me, that's pretty cool, even for someone who tries not to pay attention to that stuff."
to have Derek out there as the guy giving it to me, that's pretty cool
Seems like the Yankees appreciate Konerko more than his own team. But then class will tell.
