Frank, we all know you want hit #2000, but stop trying to do it. Just play the game like you know how, and that hit will come. You've been popping up all series!

That's exactly what he does when he presses, pops up. Remember the 2000 playoffs.

Eh, he's just cooled off a bit. After having a smokin' bat last week, he was just due to cool down. He'll be fine.

Although I think he should be seeing some time at first base I sort of think that it's a blessing in disguise that he hasn't hit too well during this recent offensive explosion. The reason for this is that he can single handedly carry an offense for a week or so, and maybe when the rest of the bats cool off a bit he can step up and pick up some of the slack. I dunno though, I always love seeing him on fire.

Give him a couple of starts at 1B and let Paulie DH a couple of days. Couldn't hurt...

If Manuel is such a big fan of using numbers to decide his line ups then he should try remembering the numbers of Frank at 1B vs. Frank at DH. It doesn't matter why it's like this, it just is.

He's tanking on purpose, he's just waiting till Monday to get hit 2000.

I agree. Manuel seems to use numbers for every other decision he makes. Why is it so hard to do same for Big Frank? Geez! Manuel is probably concerned about the team's overall fielding percentage, or something stupid like that. He's an idiot.

I hope Frank doesn't review those tapes to get ready for them again.
