Who else saw this. Ozzie finally taking a stand against this ridiculous Cub coverage. He calls Frank the best Sox player of all time, and he shouldn't get so much crap from the reporters in town. He says he doesn't want the local coverage, he wants the national coverage when they are in the playoffs. He called the obssesion over Prior, Wood, and Sosa so crazy because Frank has done so much more for this town with his back-to-back MVP awards. Amen brutha. I am so glad we have Ozzie, but at the same time, he could get a lot of crap for this. I'll post a link in a little bit.

Sound like Ozzie trying to kiss Frank's butt for some reason. Early in Frank's career when he was considered by many to be the best hitter in baseball, he got tons and tons of media coverage. Why should Frank get as much media coverage as: Wood, Prior, Sosa..... Let's be honest. Frank isn't the player he once was and he certainly isn't the biggest story on the White Sox anymore. Frank Thomas is Michael Jordan???????? Anyway, any media against the Cubs is great in my book and this is exactly why I support Ozzie being manager. He says what is on his mind. I think the Sox organization as a whole should start backlashing out against the biased media coverage in this town.

That was awesome! I love the fact that Ozzie busted the Cubune on the "Prior Watch". Talk about kissing Prior's Ass. How many times has the Cubune wiped his a$$ for him? PLEASE!

The media is always on Frank. He deserves a lot more postive press.
