I can't believe there are assclowns out there who don't think I'm a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Since this is a Thomas achievement thread, I'll just add to it with something more obscure. This is kind of dated, but according to hardballtimes.com, Thomas passed 800 RCAA (Runs Created Above Average) for his career.

1) Whitesox DH Frank Thomas passed 800 career RCAA.

After 48 RCAA/.952 OPS and 26 RCAA/.997 OPS seasons, Thomas is hitting .920 SLG, .393 OBA, 1.313 OPS in his first 10 games. He has a .997 career OPS, compared to his league average of .763, and 802 RCAA in 1935 games.

Thomas holds the Whitesox record for career RCAA by a 438 margin has more than the 2 players combined--

RCAA
1 Frank Thomas 802
2 Eddie Collins 364
3 Minnie Minoso 281
4 Luke Appling 239
5 Joe Jackson 227
6 Harold Baines 154

Having Frank back healthy is HUGE. I like the fact that he has taken the ball to center field consistently. I think his best at bat of the year was when he walked pinch hitting on Sunday because it shows a completely other side why Frank Thomas is deadly. The Dodger pitcher wanted no part of Frank throwing him 5 balls (which the 4th out of that sequence was called a strike for some reason) and his walk turns into the tying run, thats a beautiful thing. Franks OBPS and the way this team utilizes runners on base can be a big factor in favor of the sox for the rest of the year, Sunday just being one example.

442 and counting - ALL NATURAL.

Brooks should set up his HR meter and replace that damn LaSalle bank sign....and have it sponsored by GNC or something. All natural, for the natural hitter.

I love when the Sox win and I get more than 4 hours sleep - I'm a freakin' genius. :D:
