Frank sat down with AJ (http://www.csnchicago.com/06/25/10/Big-Hurt-TV-AJ-Pierzysnki-on-hot-streak/landing.html?blockID=261039&feedID=661)

Only about 5 minutes, there are a few funny lines in there.

I love Frank Thomas and I love AJ, but that was a miserable interview. Full of cliches, weak chitchat, and awkward moments.

Nice to see that the Big Hurt is still huge in a muscular sort of way, though. That man never took a steroid in his life, and should probably be one of only a few HOFers who played primarily between 1990 and 2005 not to have an asterisk by his name.

Frank is slowly getting a little better at ad-libbing and saying something of substance on the post-game show...very slowly. But l love the big lug,and am just glad to see him back in the good graces of the organization and vice versa. He seems pretty happy with his life, and that is good.

Like with belting bill melton, frank will smooth it out going forward.:D:

You can tell clearly how much more witty AJ is than Frank. But I do love seeing the big man do his thing. And there aren't many in baseball who are more witty than AJ Pierzynski.

FT needs time to develop a style...experience...once he gets that he'll be fine.

I like him a lot in this format. If the interviewee looks good, the interviewer did a good job.

Frank is getting better slowly. I love the big man more than anyone, but he makes you cringe occasionally. Glad to see he is improving as of late.

Frank seems happy to be back with the team and that's great because having him back makes me happy!

He shows signs of being a very good broadcaster. For one thing, he's got one of the best smiles in baseball! :D: I'm looking forward to seeing him develop as a commentator and interviewer and to having him in the organization, in whatever capacity, for many years to come.

Yeah it's really important that a baseball commentator has a good smile :scratch:

AJ is the best. I'd like to see him in the Sox' broadcast booth when his playing career is over.

Frank never was comfortable with the media as a player, so I give him credit. This has to be weird for him. He's gettin better though.

I'd rather see him in the dugout.

I hope Frank improves his broadcasting skills if he plans to continue in broadcasting, and it's good that he's happy, positive and smiling, but sometimes the amount he smiles can be creepy.

Frank's getting better, he can be very well spoken and he's a pretty smart guy.

I adore Frank and I'm so glad he's found a gig like this. I hope he enjoys it, because for me it's been a treat to hear his commentary. I know other Sox fans must love it too.

Some people forget he was an All-SEC tight end at Auburn as well as being a baseball star. In fact, he went to Auburn on a football scholarship - not a baseball one.

I agree, like most catchers, he'd probably do well on a coaching staff

Plus he's too fast a talker to be any good in the booth.

LOVE having big Frank back and associated with this team, he is a bit rough here and there, but should improve


Hope Frank is at Sox Fest this year........

Frank is not a trained or experienced broadcaster. Obviously, being on the other side of the mike is very uncomfortable for him. He'll have the off-season to really work on his broadcasting skills and I'm betting we'll see a much-improved Frank next season.
