Konerko, Greinke, and a Swing That Contained Multitudes

Let’s start with the video. And then the words. Because you might not spot everything in the video the first time through. It sorta looks like an everyday foul ball, maybe with some sort of inside joke at the end. Trust me, though, this moment is fairly epic. Paul Konerko‘s reaction provides our first clue that something was a bit different about this swing. He’s animated...

Paul Konerko leaves tribute to family in infield dirt

I’m not going to lie to you, I’m kinda glad the Paul Konerko retirement train left the station long after the Derek Jeter lovefest began. Because after this last weekend of the baseball season, the longtime Chicago White Sox star’s final games have made me feel all the feels. Sox fan Chris Claeys returning Konerko’s 2005 grand slam ball, his new statue at U.S. Cellular Field…that...

Paul Konerko's retirement also deserves your attention

For reasons that are beyond obnoxious at this point, the good, bad and absurd commentary on Derek Jeter’s farewell tour — and the man himself — continues to rage. It’s obnoxious for all sorts of reasons, but the largest that looms is that there’s far more talk about a player and team that will be watching the postseason from home rather than the men that will actually...

WATCH: Paul Konerko thanks White Sox fans before he retires

You may have missed it among the endless parade of Derek Jeter ceremonies, but Paul Konerko is also retiring after the 2014 season.

For Konerko, victory lap with White Sox begins

Paul Konerko figures there will be emotional moments as he winds through his final season with the Chicago White Sox. Just don't expect him to get all misty eyed for his final spring training.

Chicago White Sox Filling Holes For 2014

The Chicago White Sox announced a big signing today, ok maybe not as big as Jacoby Ellsbury with the Yankees but they did bring back team captain and fan favorite Paul Konerko.  Although his last season was disappointing as he hit .244 with 12 home runs, he can still hit the lefties.  As bad as Adam Dunn is, he is horrendous against lefties.  Adam Dunn hit .197 against lefties...
