A team is not just going to take on Frank's contract and get nothing else in return. The Sox would have to include a big time minor league prospect with the deal. Something along the likes of Borchard, Honel, Malone, Stumm, etc. (well, it used to be etc., but after KW that's about it. :smile: ) to unload the unsliding Big Skirt. Would you include a top prospect to get rid of Thomas??? Thats the question. I personally am not a Malone fan, never have been. He looks like a lefty Dan Wright. I would probably ship Malone and Thomas for one of there mid-level prospects (we have to get something.) I wouldnt trade Borchard or Honel, unless it was the perfect deal. Knowing KW, that is probably Omar Daal and Mark Grudzalanek.

Would I throw in a top prospect to "rid the team of the player Frank Thomas"?

You are joking right?

Man, Frank Hating is reaching a new level of "ludicrousiousity"...

No, no....Would would throw in a top prospect, in addition to Thomas, to receive at the very most a mid-level prospect.

as someone said before on this board "if frank is traded the sox lose many of there fans" therefore kw wont trade Big Frank.(at least he better not)
but i doubt anyone on this board will stop being a sox fan if he is traded (if hes traded i gotta change my user name if its possible!!!!)

Agreed, at this time this is no market for Frank....NONE...

The Sox i am sure would love to move him and would take anything for him, even with another bashing from the media of going back to square one.

If you think about it, yes he used to be a great hitter...the best we have ever had.....but he cant play the field or doesnt want too..he is bailing out on outside pitches, bad attitude, not productive in the present and makes 10 million dollars....but you can never take away what he has done.
