  • Re: 2009 MLB Thread, Part II: Claimed Off The Waiver Wire

    The White Sox will be retiring Frank Thomas' #35 this season...

    Much like Ken Griffey Jr., Thomas is one of the few players who did things the "right way" in the 1990's... Not once has he been linked to PEDs... I'll definitely be looking forward to seeing him in Cooperstown in a few years...
    It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

    Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!

      I'm sick of people saying Frank Thomas did things the right way. Just because he wasn't caught doing anything doesn't make him a Saint.

      And it definitely doesn't make him innocent.

      We have no idea if the people that are clean cheated or not. Unless you have all their urine and blood samples from back in the day.

      Otherwise, sthu. Stop praising the man for not cheating, instead praise him for being one of the best players of his era.

          Because Lincecum didn't want to sign a 3 year deal. And Lincecum is still arbitration eligible until 2013.

          For the Love of God before you get all catty at the Yankees do some research.

          This deal is for 2010 and 2011. 2012 and 2013 he will still be under the control of the Giants.

          2014 is his first arbitration year.

            I am confused. First you have Lincecum arbitration eligible until 2013 and then you have 2014 as his first arbitration year. Do you mean 2014 is his first FA year?

              He will be eligible for FA after the 2013 season.

              Re: Thomas. And I'm not in a bad mood, I'm just finding this finding of sainthood for not getting caught to be stupid.

              Just because he didn't get caught doesn't make him amazing and it doesn't even make him innocent.

                      Nate McLouth wears #24 on his jersey because 24 is his favorite TV show. That's pretty funny.
