2001 Review

The Big Hurt felt the big hurt in many different ways in 2001. He walked out of spring training due to contract concerns. The media ripped him apart for it and when he returned he offered an apology. In game 20 of the season Frank hurt his arm and was out for the season. After the injury, then White Sox left hander David Wells claimed Thomas should tough it out. Which started a small verbal war between Wells and Thomas. Of course the ironic part of it was that Wells left quite a few games with back trouble.

For 2002, the WSI Wiz predicts...
The Wiz predicts Frank will finally be given the chance to play DH full-time without sniping from loud-mouth pitchers or hair-brained managers.  The Wiz predicts Frank will return to impressive form, thanks in large part to the best supporting cast of hitters he's had in nearly ten years.  The Wiz predicts Frank will be happier, relieved of the pressure to carry the entire offense.  However, it will take all the magic in the jewel of Zanzibar before Cubs fans stop claiming Sammy Sosa is the best hitter in the city.  The Wiz says, "Consider the source."
