They brought up a really interesting point on the Big Skirt. They showed how back in the early 90's when he could hit he leaned into the pitch and was able to reach most anything. Nowadays, he swings while he's back on his heels & makes weak contact every time if he makes contact at all.

Memo to the skirt: WATCH SOME FILM WHY DON'T YA!!!!

I saw that too, they showed the same thing yesterday. It was Wimpy who was doing all the analyzing on Frank.

He needs to go talk to Hriniak. Frank said he wouldn't, so this is the Frank we have.

And he and Gary Ward aren't speaking? Or is it that Gary Ward doesn't see it either? :?:

"As I've told you before, if the fans come to the ballpark, we will purchase a VCR for Frank."

Of course I'm not in the clubhouse so I have no idea. Frank seems like the type of guy that wants to solve this either with Walt, or on his own. I would assume he's working with Ward, but tuning him out at the same time.

You could be right. Back in 1999, someone in the Sox organization suggested that Frank work with Von Joshua to correct a flaw in his swing. They worked together a whopping total of one time. Afterwards, someone told Frank that Von had several things he wanted Frank to try. Thomas' response was, "Good for Von."

We can see how well Frank's working things out on his own is going. Maybe Manuel should bench him until he listens if that's the problem. :?:

Not a bad idea, what's the chairman going to say?

And the only thing worse than a stupid idiot with a big ego is two stupid idiots with big egos.

"Hey, Frank. Let's go over to Walmart and slash people's tires."

:hurt

"Yeah. Hehehe! That would be cool."

I've been saying all along that he pulls his shoulder out and everything goes to hell from there.
