I guess Frank Thomas doesn't count?

Does he play for the Red Sox? No, he doesn't count.

Good call. But Gammons has always been a fan of the Sox youth.

Well, a healthy Frank Thomas would impact the pennant race more than a healthy Aaron Boone would, that's for sure.

But jeez, if all 6 of those pitchers he mentioned can make a contribution in 2002, we'll be right there...
