Great article, Hal! I am glad that you were able to get it to us with your connection problems. I hope they are resolved soon.

I did not hear the MJ&H show that you wrote about, but when I read what the web poll question was I had the same response as you: "What has Frank Thomas done that he has to redeem himself?"

As far as I know, the man is honest and has never slighted Sox fans. IIRC, when he has been booed (especially 2002) he never complained about it (unlike other players). Frank Thomas has been dedicated to the White Sox organization and the fans since he was called up 15 years ago. Sure, he has made some questionable statements, but he has never deserved the treatment he has received from the media. Half-truths, speculation, and quotes taken out of context have demonized this man. He is a true hero, an honest athlete, and one of the best to ever put on a White Sox uniform. Maybe the media needs to redeem themselves to Frank Thomas.
