I was listening to ESPN Sports Radio 1000 today for a few minutes, and they happened to be interviewing Paul Konerko. Konerko seems to be a well-spoken, intelligent guy. One interesting fact that he mentioned was that the White Sox’s five-year, $60MM offer was the only offer he received from Chicago.
It had previously been reported that his agent Craig Landis received a four-year, $52MM offer around November 10th. Konerko called this offer "fiction."
