It's one thing to watch a highlight of back to back to back homers...but, it's even cooler to watch it live on tv. Frank crushed his 3rd homer in between Chavez and Milton Bradley.

My dad just called and told me about this...it's also pretty impressive that this happened on three consecutive pitches as well.

I'm happy for Frank. I definitely want to see him hit #500 before he leaves the game. :smile:

Wherever Frank is...my dad and I agreed to go and watch him hit number 500, if he gets there. It might take some money and time, but I think it would be an amazing experience.

Phil Rogers in his column tonight in the Tribune talks about some of the guys who are struggling and Frank is apparently one of them. According to Phil, Frank's BA is under .200 and he has more strikeouts then walks.

LipYeah, but a couple of days ago his average was .086. He's starting to get dialed in. And it's "more strikeouts than walks." Sorry for getting testy about it, but this is the time of year when I'm grading term papers, and the then/than and there/their/they're thing is making me nuts right now.

He's gone 4-8 his last two games, but the Big Hurt has K'd in his last 7.

I wouldn't pay any attention to Rogers. Frank has always been a slow starter, and as Rogers has covered the Sox for so long, he should be aware of that. The baseball season is twenty six weeks long, not two. Frank has been swinging the bat well recently, and appears to be getting on track. His average is low because he started 2-25. Rogers should find more constructive things to do with his time, rather than writing about things that don't matter in the long run.

First time that's happened since Sept 29, 2001 when Fred McGriff, Rondell White and Todd Hundley of the Cubs did it vs the Houston's Dave Mlicki, according to Elias.

Big Frank's gonna have to get his average higher than .189 though, and soon if he wants to keep he pursuit for 500 homers alive. I wish him well.

The .189 looks worse than it is. He's actually raised it 100 pts over the past week. Frank trails the team leader in RBI by just 2 & R by just 2. Even with a .189A he's still a 755 OPS player right now.
