Today marks Paul Konerko’s tenth year of big league service time. Happy anniversary Paul! Konerko’s spent more than the last five seasons with the White Sox; as a result, he’s a 10-and-5 player. He can now veto any trade, and sees himself staying in Chicago at least for the length of his current deal (through 2010).
There were some rumblings in the winter that the Angels might make a play for Konerko, but Kenny Williams denied any trade discussions.
