Default Frank Thomas to work as Sox TV analyst

Per Ed Sherman:

The Big Hurt is returning to Chicago for a short-term gig as CSN's pre-game and post-game analyst.

Well that should make things interesting
We'll see how he does. I don't remember him being the most effective of speakers. Don't get me wrong, he speaks fine. But usually commentators and analysts have a certain presence.

Sweet! Has Melton been fired?

Edit: Nevermind, it's only for the crosstown games.

Ditto.

Maybe the HOF lobbying will begin in earnest now.

With Black Jack blogging, Ventura making appearances in the Sox dugout, all that was needed was for the Big Hurt to attach himself to this team in some minor way.

As I read it, it's just a five-game gig during the Sox-Cubs telecasts. But since Frank's agent apparently initiated the discussion with Comcast, I assume he's interested in more regular work.

Can Frank teach our hitters to go the othe way?

I've seen him do it before, I believe it was during the '07 playoffs. I think he did a good job.

I thought he did some work for Fox. I thought he was very well spoken.

Can Frank be our hitting coach when he's done on TV?

Why don't they take the cue of some other teams and do the postgame show from the OF concourse?
