Frank Thomas was embarrassing himself. He couldn't catch up to a legit fastball and could not run the bases anymore. On more than one occasion he prevented someone from a double or could not score a run from second. I for one am glad he is gone, I would prefer anyone in the middle of the lineup. As for JP... he would be crucified for doing nothing and he is being crucified for trying something. He's trying to mix things up for a struggling offense, why is that such a joke?
Ummm.....look at his FA signings:
Thomas,Scuttaro,Eckstein,Koskie,Burnette,Clayton,Ohka,Zambrano,Overbay,Thompson and now.......Mench and Wilkerson
Those are just off the top of my head.
Yes, he is a joke and this team will never do anything until he is gone.
