Frank should be the one asking for some help.
From Newsday.com
Mo Vaughn was dreading the visit to Chicago because he feared that his good friend, White Sox slugger Frank Thomas, would get in his face about his terrible slump. The two talked on the field for a long time before last night's game, with Thomas giving Vaughn some feedback on his recent problems, mostly about his mental approach

Wonder what he told him?

"Make sure to buckle your knees and watch every inside curve drop in for a strike."

"When you strike out looking, make a big angry frown at the umpire before going back to the dugout."

"Pop the ball up and take a slow trot to first. Time it so you are making the U-turn at first just as the fielder is catching the ball. This looks really good on T.V."

Classic.

Frank's shown some signs of at least hitting the ball with some authority lately, even if they haven't gone for hits. Who knows, maybe he's coming out of his slump.

"Pull one arm off the bat and flail wildly as you pop out meekly to short left-center."

"Stand 5 feet from home plate yet roll your eyes when the ump calls the inside strike."

That's very nice Frank... but work on your own swing first before trying to help others.

You guys make me want to f***ing throw up. Think about what you are saying for Christs sakes. It's one of his good friends who went thru a very similar injury and who is struggling right now and going thru many of the same things as he is, and they are talking about it. Unbelievable, listening to you guys you would thing Frank is Royce F'ing Clayton. The guys is NOT playing that bad. He didn't play at all last year, give him a break. I think maybe you guys could find something to be a little more critical of.
