That is so true. Carlos was not having a good spring and kind of made the team by default.

If Owens doesn't get hurt, 2008 AL Central Championship does not happen.

Either way, he was fun to watch, especially when he was in one of those streaks. He could carry the team for days at a time.

'We drafted him... He achieved greatness here... A 2-time MVP, and one of the BEST hitters in MLB history... And soon he will wear a White Sox uniform again... On his Hall of Fame plaque. He's #35, Frank Thomas!

I think you're right, if I remember correctly.

Frank Thomas: the best Sox player there was, and the best Sox player there ever will be! No doubt about it!

I've kinda been avoiding this thread as to somehow avoid the reality of TCQ being gone. I'll miss ya, bud! Thanks for your time on the Southside!

Good bye to the man who could grow a beard in three hours. You were my favorite player. Underapprecciated in my opinion.
