Frank Thomas Redux

My, oh my.

Let's see. Sign Big Hurt for peanuts. Watch him have a Comeback Year and lead the club to its first playoff series win in 16 years. Let him go FA for a bloated contract. Pick him back up for pro-rated major league minimum 16 months later. Pretty good deal. Especially for a team that's been out-homered by Chase Utley so far (but remains in first place due to superior pitching and a lot of bloop hits).

Won't Medium Hurt be excited when I tell him tonight.

Update: Frank in the lineup today. Giddyup.

Oh man... I was holding out a little hope the Mariner's were gonna find a way to grab him.

Big get for the A's indeed! (For a ridiculously small amount too.)

The eye holes in that mask aren't disguised by big Frank's ginormous nostrils, are they?
