Rumor: Orioles Make ‘Significant’ Offer To Konerko

Jim Bowden, a former MLB general manager and current MLB Network and FOX Sports radio host, said the following in a tweet.

“BaltimoreOrioles have been aggressive with free agents and despite losing out on Victor Martinez have made significant offer to Paul Konerko”

The Orioles also made offers to Konerko when he was a free-agent back in 2005.

Konerko is listed as a Type A, which would cost the Orioles or any other team that signed him a second-round draft pick.

    Baltimore couldn’t hold a candle to Konerko’s contract! Nice try! Pauly is a White Sox player!!!

    Should have traded him before last season, or during. Now he walks, and the Sox basically get nothing in return. He’s not coming back, unless the $$ are not out there. He’s not a 22 yr old player anymore. His best years are behind him realistically. He can still produce daily, but at what cost?

  • Stone

    The Sox let Thome go because they assumed his best years were behind him. How did that work out? Bad for the Sox, good for the Twins. They’re not going to make the same mistake with Pauly.
