Does Konerko not know how to manage his money? If that's the case then one million eight years from now is not going to help with that problem.
I guess you can platoon Konerko & Dunn at DH but it still seems like a waste of a roster spot.

How does that work with deferred money? He earned it for playing baseball but it isn't paid out until after his playing career is over.
Under federal law, states are not allowed to tax retirement income of nonresidents if the payments meet certain criteria. If the payments are from a nonqualified deferred compensation plan, the payments must be made over a period of at least ten years or for life
Deferred money can help with taxes. I know ballplayers typically pay state income taxes where the games are played. How does that work with deferred money? He earned it for playing baseball but it isn't paid out until after his playing career is over.
Ray Olmedo, Tyler Greene, Jordan Danks, Brents Morel and Lillibridge
Hey, maybe he just loves Jerry Reinsdorf so is doing this to be as nice to Jerry's wallet as possible, but he's actually losing money by spreading out however many million dollars over 10 (years).

It's like giving the White Sox a zero interest loan for X years. The only way I'd agree to something like this would be a situation where I would get say, 9 million this year or 10 million spread over 5 years. Even then, I doubt it's a good deal.
I really, really doubt the Sox said to him "Our offer is $2.5 million. Would you like it all now, or do you want 1.5 now and the rest in 2021?" and Konerko replied "The second one! The second one!"
Konerko's career gross earnings are north of $120mm. I think he'll be just fine deferring receipt of $1mm a few years.
Konerko complains about how showy he is and how they need someone out there to show those youngsters how to play the game?
Of course Keppinger is about 150 PA from not being a major-leaguer anymore.
It's the vet leader position. I agree it seems silly to have 2 guys plus Abreu who aren't exactly versatile in the field but it seems no sillier than the Indians paying Giambi to take 200 PA again and substantially less silly (from a baseball perspective) than whatever the Yanks are paying Jeter.
So he's only 6 total bases behind the Big Hurt, despite trailing him by 22 HR's?
Pauly Konerko, doubles machine.

but it does sort of disspel the notion that Konerko would never pop off about a teammate to the press, no?
