Pooh Konerko

Hey everybody, reading all of the internet analysis of Paul Konerko possibly signing with the Angels might convince you that Paulie is a disaster waiting to befall someone:

*Arthritic hip? Check.
*Age 30 on Opening Day? Check.
*Good friends with the Field Manager? Check. (Baseball's claims toward meritocracy always fail when this surface is scratched)
*Would block a position at which the team is deep? Check.
*Is a shitty defender at that position? Check.
*More money per year than Vlad? Check.
*More years than Vlad? Check.
*Couldn't carry Vlad's jockstrap? Check.

Of course, Mike Scioscia's buffet buddy, radio Legend Joe McDonnell loves the thought of one of Mikey's Dodgerbuddies returning to the Non-Tommy Fold. Joe McDonnell would take a bullet for Mike Scioscia he is so mancrush in love with the Head Halo. But that don't make this right.

Analysis...
At his absolute best, Konerko would be Troy Glaus as a 1B with a bad glove. And making $6 million more per year than Troy is making now. And that is the BEST we could hope for, and it would not be likely to last more than a season and they are talking about five or six for a guy who struck out 109 times last season and grounded into 23 Double Plays.

Track Record...
Unlike the starfucker media, most bloggers think about these things. Speaking for myself I am on record as being against the Steve Finley signing from Day One last offseason, so trust me here and not these post-Dodger asslickers all wanting the reflected glory of Big Blue's lost greatness gone elsewhere.
