It seems like people set up for holiday seasons earlier and earlier each year.
No, I’m not talking about the Halloween displays that popped up shortly after Labor Day in my neighborhood. No, I’m referring to another time of year that is upon us prematurely:
KONERKO TO THE ANGELS???
season. The OC Register popped the cork:
Meanwhile, the Angels’ regard for Konerko is well-established. They went after him hard following the 2005 season when Konerko was a free agent. Sentiment led him to re-sign with the then-reigning World Series champs.
Konerko is five years older now and the Angels should have had their fill of signing aging sluggers (i.e. Matsui and Bobby Abreu). But if other things don’t pan out (i.e. Carl Crawford), Konerko could become a short-term option. Maybe he could fit in a three-way triangle with Kendry Morales and Abreu, playing first base and DH.
Is this a Plan B the Angels should keep in mind?
I thought KONERKO TO THE ANGELS??? Season lasted from the end of the World Series to the July 31 trade deadline, but this is like Punxsutawney Phil popping up two weeks into January. At least it gives me more time to shop.
Christian Marrero Reading Room:
*One legit Konerko note: The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo says that contract length “won’t be a huge factor,” so maybe two years isn’t out of the question.
*Site notes: I finally got the archives and contact pages up and running.
*While working on the minor-league section of White Sox Outsider 2011, I looked at the 2006 draft. If you ever forget why Duane Shaffer was fired, it’s because he selected 50 players in his final draft, and Kanekoa Texeira is the only one to make the majors.
*Rick Hahn might be hampered by “assistant” status in the Mets’ GM search.
*The White Sox still lost fewer days on the DL than every other team, despite seeming worse than usual. I may write more about this tomorrow.
*Jerry Reuss has his own Flickr page (tip of the hat to Rob), and his White Sox photos are a lot of fun to look through. Great photos of Old Comiskey, New Comiskey construction and Greg Walker in short shorts.
*J.J. puts Dayan Viciedo on the examination table.
*White Sox Interactive has a history of White Sox and the media, Part I and Part II. In the second part, it’s interesting to hear Mark Gonzales and Joe Cowley talk about some unnamed Cubs reporters. Hopefully blogs will have a big part in Part III.
