Konerko chatter heating up

A good analysis of the situation from a Yahoo Writer:

Basically, any article advocating that any team BUT the Angels sign Paul Konerko is okay by me.

Here is what it boils dow to: PK plays 1B - Erstad is already blocking Kotchman and Morales in bubbling under in the minors. If Konerko were a Catcher - well then maybe, but he is not. He offers little to this team when one considers what he is blocking.

When they bandy about numbers around like $15 million a year for Konerko, Manny Ramirez starts to look quite, well, angelic.
