Re: Win now with Konerko at 1b


I'm of the belief that the NL is vastly inferior to the AL and that Konerko switching leagues would be a boon to his numbers and, certainly, the Giants' poorly conceived and constructed offense.

That said, no way the ChiSox give him up for what we've got to offer. Winn for Konerko reminds me of a quote from High Fidelity:

"Sometimes I got so bored of trying to touch her breast that I would try to touch her between her legs. It was like trying to borrow a dollar, getting turned down, and asking for 50 grand instead."

Konerko would be going from a great hitters park to one of the toughest also.

LM - "Fresh" is arguing that it would be a good thing to get Konerko (or at least that's how it reads to me).

You are arguing that we should be looking all over and "scavenging" (which I read as "looking for other team's cast-offs, hoping to find one or two decent players").

I don't think that the two of you are agreeing (but I could have misunderstood either or both of your points).

Do not suggest trading for somebody for only two years (unless the Giants dump a crappy contract)

True, but Mays Field kills lefties, not righties.

To clarify-I don't think it's possible to create a post season calibur lineup by 2010 by picking up castoffs and developing what is currently in the Giants system. I think we need to add a probably 3 well established productive players via FA or trade to the recipe to get there.

From the current crop of Lewis, Rajai, Shierholtz, Frandsen, Ortmeier, we get 1 maybe 2 regulars who stick, we'd be in great shape to get a third.

So you still need to add 5 players to that mix. Maybe we keep Benjie or Winn for another year, we've got Rowand. That still leaves two players to add.

I'm just saying you can't rebuild in one offseason, or even two when you've got fringe youngsters in the bigs and nothing between there and Low A.

Konerko is an every other year player. He will mash next season, guarenteed.

Actually, I was with Fresh on the Konerko point, too. Macpherson is also someone we should be kicking the tires on. Sort of what I meant by scavenging.
