The talk in Boston today is all about Konerko becoming a free agent this off season. Now it's been reported that Paul is not interested in coming to the East Coast, but just the thought was enough to get me excited. Imagine 3-4-5 being Ortiz, Manny, and Paul. Wow. Think of the power in there.
And that was with Chicago. Imagine what his numbers would look like here. Imagine this year's numbers with a true 5 hitter.
Konerko would also fill in the gaping hole at first. Of course, the other possibility would be Manny finally getting his wish and leaving the Red Sox. In that case, Konerko would fill Manny's shoes in the line-up.
Mind, this wouldn't fix what's really wrong with the Boston Red Sox. If they don't get some better pitching, it really won't matter who they pick up in the free agent market this year.
Congratulations on finding a gazoo.
