Pauly re-signs

Hrvoje Zolo, Staff reporter

Paul Konerko, the Chicago White Sox legend, just re-signed to the Sox for three years for 37.5 million dollars. One of his best seasons came last year. He batted .312 with thirty-nine home runs and one hundred and eleven runs batted in, which was the third highest in his long career. The Chicago White Sox offense was pretty solid last season and Konerko was a big part of it.

To start his career in 1997, Konerko was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Then in 1998 he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds. He was only there for a year because he was traded to the Chicago White Sox in 1999. Now he has re-signed for three years and he will most likely retire after this contract because he is in his thirties.

This is a definite plus for our Chicago team.  Konerko led the Sox to the World Series Championship in 2005. He is always a good contact and power hitter, and people can’t wait to see how he does this next season.

Now, for the next season, the White Sox acquired star slugger Adam Dunn off of free agents. This next year we will have two of the best home runs hitters. With U.S Cellular Field being a nice home run park, Dunn should fit in perfectly fine with the team next season.

Watch out for the Chicago White Sox next season because they will be a threat to take the championship.
