For the first time since the 1998 season Paul Konerko wasn't part of the White Sox Opening Day lineup.
The White Sox needed a jolt of energy after a 99-loss season in 2013.

Maybe it was an ex-teammate’s prank, one last gag after he had been traded, but Adam Eaton thought there was no way Paul Konerko was on the other end of his phone that December day.
Paul Konerko has spent 15 previous Aprils and Mays playing in Chicago and he’s still not accustomed to the cold weather.
Though the matchup doesn’t call for it, the White Sox are considering starting Paul Konerko on Opening Day. But it’s not because the team’s captain has lobbied for a 16th straight Opening Day star
