(WSCR) Simply put, Paul Konerko’s production over the past few years has been remarkable.

In 2010, he hit .312 with 39 home runs and 111 RBIs. The first baseman backed that up with a .300 average, 31 homers and 105 RBIs in 2011. Now, through 46 games in 2012, Konerko is batting a staggering .395 with 11 home runs and 33 RBIs.

“I think at this point we have to start debating whether he’s a Hall of Famer, the way things are going for him,” Jon Heyman of CBS Sports told The Mully and Hanley Show. “Nobody would’ve thought that early in his career. First, they weren’t sure he was going to be a good player, then he was a good player, and now he’s a great player. I don’t hesitate to say that.”

The 36-year-old Konerko is a career .284 hitter with 407 home runs, 1,284 RBIs and 2,090 hits over 16 seasons.

“One thing that is remarkable about him, is he’s been better as he’s gotten into his mid-30s,” Heyman said. “He hit over .300 the last two years. He’s had great years toward what you would think would be the end of his career. Really, he’s having a remarkable start and he’s a great, great player.”
