White Sox

Look, I like Konerko a great deal. He's essentially a lock for 30-plus homers and 100-plus RBI. All things being equal, he's the first baseman I'd want if I missed out on the Big Six (Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Joey Votto, Adrian Gonzalez, Prince Fielder, Mark Teixeira). Unfortunately, not all things are equal. As reliable as Konerko is, I'd prefer to take my chances on getting Michael Morse, Freddie Freeman or Paul Goldschmidt at a much cheaper price. Konerko isn't a bad pick in the mid-40s where he's currently going, but I'd be confident that I could grab someone at a cheaper rate who could match, or at least approach, his numbers.
