Tyler Flowers powers White Sox past Astros

Paul Konerko was asked before the game Saturday about how different things would be for the White Sox if they hadn’t signed Jose Abreu last fall. Abreu was courted by many suitors, including the Astros, who were willing to invest tens of millions in a rookie who had never played pro baseball.

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...
