Latest Update Paul Konerko is slated for his final start at first base in Sunday's season finale. Sun Sep, 28, 09:20 AM
Was a natural run producer. Had power and a very good batting eye. Over the years, he learned to take a walk and showed clutch ability when driving runners in. Was also a born leader.
Flaws: : Was not a gold-glove caliber first baseman by any stretch. Like most first sackers, he lacked mobility and was slow around the bases. Also, he showed steady decline late in his career.
Konerko is sitting on a .279 career batting average with 439 home runs, with the majority of his production coming since joining the White Sox in 1999. Although he will likely not find himself in Cooperstown, he has certainly been a class act over the course of his career and will be missed in the White Sox clubhouse when he retires after the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Konerko is still dealing with a hand issue, so he's been in and out of the lineup the last few games. With this being the White Sox final series of the season and a home one at that, you can expect Konerko to be in the lineup over the weekend for his last hurrah.Analyst: Howard Bender
This could be Konerko's last time playing in a White Sox uniform, so Ventura is going to get him plenty of playing time before the season is over.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Konerko was satisfied, but it is doubtful his fantasy owners were. Konerko will likely get a few more starts in the last week of his career, but there is no reason to play him in any format.Analyst: Steve Pimental
