Chicago White Sox: What Sox Fans Want to See from Paul Konerko Before Retirement

"Paulie, Paulie, Paulie."

Picture me and 30,000 White Sox fans at U.S. Cellular field screaming that loud and clear after Paul Konerko belted a homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the Sox ahead for good.

I've said this before, but it's too good not to say again.  Paul Konerko, captain of the Chicago White Sox, is like a fine wine.  He just gets better and better with age.

Look at the guy's numbers since age 30: He's belted 186 HRs, driven in 569 RBI and been on three American League All-Star teams.  Before age 30, he only earned that honor once.

Sadly, facts are facts. Players get old, their performance eventually declines and then they retire.

It's unfortunate, but it's life.
