Didn't know Frank was tied for #2 in this category. This should boost his HOF credentials

God knows I think the sun rises and sets around Frank Thomas, but did you actually see the 2000 playoffs? I doubt his OBP is what the voters will remember! Of course his lines in "93 were great.

I am so bummed Frank wont have the chance to right the ship this October.

Are you kidding me??? What playoffs? Frank's OBP would be Shrinking if he was in the playoffs this year.

Jose Offerman? That's gotta be the only list of top ten anythings that he's on.

Or he could move down, which would be much more likely.
