Seems like it would be a waste to sign Thomas to anything unless you pay him near to nothing. He is not the difference maker he once was and he would be blocking other players. I generally don't like injury prone, disgruntled, distracted players.

He used to the "Big Hurt." Now I'd just say he's an "Annoying Paper-Cut"

It is definitely up there, right alongside the general disrespect that Clemens and Pedro get.


Just to stay on topic, Frank did hit like 12 dingdongs for my team during a crucial 3 weeks in august. I'll take 100(plus 62 from some plus scrub) UTIL games out of him in the 15-20(depending where he lands) round range anytime.
