Several months ago, I started a thread (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=38615&highlight=Clone+Frank+Thomas) about cloning Frank Thomas. I cannot legally bring that thread back from the dead, so I have decided to create a second thread devoted to the idea of cloning Big Frank. Imagine having an entire roster filled with Frank Thomas clones. It's an especially interesting idea now, because we don't know when the original Frank will return to the lineup.

From the sounds of it we wouldn't be able to Field a team until May... that's a lot of games to make up.

Does anyone else notice how all the Franks look slightly different when they're lined up like that?

I like it. Maybe some of those extra Franks can be sent to the Bears too. It was tight end he played right?

Eight of these things are kind of the same...

Which one gets to wear 35?

Also, can you make one more who can go out and smash people we don't like?

They all do, but each number will have a letter suffix attached. One clone will be 35-A, the next 35-B, and so on.

Okay so that covers DH who will we clone to play 1B.

Under the guidelines of the old plan, each clone would be able to play a different position. The entire team would be covered.

You mean have 9 Big Hurts clogging the bases?

Have 9 guys in the lineup to hit a towering popup when a scorched liner is what we need?

Nine guys who won't take the catcher out at home?

Come on, this is preposterous.

I love the Chicago White Sox, and I respect Frank Thomas. But 9 of him is a little too much.

The clones would be modified so that they didn't do those things anymore.

well, if you can clone, you surely can manipluate the DNA to make a Frank for each position. like a faster Frank for CF.

The Center field Frank would have increased speed so that he could get to balls hit in the gap.

So three strait walks and then three strait pop ups to the second baseman... I don't like our chances!

We will have special pitching-optimized Frank's for interleague play.

Would you rather watch Crede flailing away up there? I wouldn't.

It's an especially interesting idea now, because we don't know when the original Frank will return to the lineup.

Not only that, but the British scientist responsible for Dolly has now been given a liscense (http://www.rednova.com/news/display/?id=125755) to clone humans. Maybe we're closer than we think.

In all seriousness, I agree with an earlier poster that 9 Franks might cause a bet of a problem in a couple facets of the game. Serious genetical changes would have to be made to some of them.
