White Sox Considered Konerko As Manager - RealGM Wiretap The White Sox revealed on Tuesday that before hiring Robin Ventura as manager, the team considered Paul Konerko for the position.

"Well, it was considered long enough for me to realize that Paul is a very cerebral person and he would probably drive himself nuts right now playing and managing at the same time," Williams said. "But that's the kind of respect I have for him that yeah, I did consider it. Then I thought I think I would rather him be focused more on hitting third or fourth in the lineup and driving in 100 runs rather than trying to worry about 25 other guys in addition to it. We are trying to win." .
