Paul Konerko has a hand/thumb injury so bad that it hurt to tie his shoes during his three days of rest last weekend, and has gone 97 consecutive plate appearances without a HR, during which time he's hit .190/.292/.226. He needs just 10 more to match his longest career drought during his dismal 2003 season. After 0-6 performance last night, Konerko now sits at .204/.325/.333 on the season.
It's hard to hit a baseball when your hands aren't healthy. It's even harder to hit for power when your hand isn't right.
So my question to you guys is What do we expect from Paulie for the rest of the season? Should he just go on the DL to give Josh Fields or Brad Eldred a shot?
