Paul Konerko is one of the most notable names in the history of not only the Chicago White Sox but Chicago sports in general. He hit the monster grand slam in the 2005 World Series, won the MVP of the 2005 ALCS, and has had many memorable moments in the regular season. He is one of the three greatest players in the history of the franchise in most people’s minds.
For that reason, you have to think that he might take up coaching one day. He isn’t really readily available for the media since his career ended but he was a great baseball mind. He was also a tremendous leader as he was often referred to as the White Sox captain. If you are that baseball smart and that good of a leader, it is the makings of a great Major League manager.
If he came out of nowhere and wanted to be a Major League manager in a few years, the White Sox might be smart to be a player for him. He is one of the great faces this franchise has ever had to represent them. He has been a classy, quiet, great person for them and a chance as a manager could be in his future if he wanted it. Paulie is one of the great leaders this team has ever had and it would be awesome to see him bring it to an actual leadership position.
