View Full Version : Big Hurt left off the all-star game flier

Did somebody else already post this news?

Baseball God and one-time all-star Ron Kittle makes it, but Frank doesn't.

Warm and fuzzy personality Carlton Fisk makes it, but Frank doesn't.

This outfit is so screwed up, sometimes it leaves me speechless.

Sox mission statement:

Treat 'em like dirt-then use their good name in 10 years-who'll remember?

Translation-Frank Thomas bobble head day in 2012.

So how long until after he leaves will it take the Sox to retire No. 35? You have to admit it would be current management's style to let him go, then make a big production out of retiring the uniform number even though Thomas was probably helping some other team, not the Sox, gain a playoff spot. I guess this means Frank is destined to be the next Harold Baines. Maybe they'll bring him back in 2008.

I told that b*tch in our promotions department that if that fat motherf***er was anywhere on our All-Star brochure, she'd best be looking for a new f***ing job!

The Sox organization is absolutely clueless when it comes to doing anything related to public relations and/or reaching the fan base. They just don't get it.

Frank Thomas has been the Sox best and most marketable player for more than a decade, yet no one has the courtesy or the better judgement to include him in a simple AS Game handout. I guess one could argue that the PR staff is preparing for the possible departure of the Big Hurt, but what they fail to realize is that is it these types of incidents that will drive Thomas out of town. If he feels he is no longer welcome, he will leave.

If that happens, JR will blame the fans (again), and the Sox will start Jeff Liefer at DH next season, with the occasional appearance of Lee at DH, so Willie Harris can play center, and Rowand can start in left.

That is simply a classless and disgraceful move. I wasnt aware the old players were on there-now I am flat mad.
