Frank Thomas doesn't. He was talking about this just a couple of days ago. Plus he mentioned that they shouldn't bring him up to be a spark, or a "savior" as that can put a lot of pressure on him and can mess him up if he doesn't perform. I agree with him. Who knows, we might finally have someone who is not so mentally fragile, but why risk it. Let him come up in September with a bunch of other guys. He won't be labeled as the savior, and hopefully multiple call-ups will dilute the toxicity in the clubhouse.
