YearComment
2009 Watching Thomas last year provoked similar feelings to those of witnessing the final years of Steve Carlton, where all one could do was remember what once was one of the best players in the game. So let's forget about the drama surrounding Thomas's Toronto release or his second Oakland stint limited by bad wheels, and let's remember instead that for more than a few years this guy was the most dangerous hitter in the game, a player everyone at the ballpark stood still to watch when he came to the plate. From 1991-1997, Thomas lead the AL in OPS four times, and in the other three years he finished second twice and third once. In the shortened 1994 season, he reached base 252 times in 113 games while adding 73 extra-base hits. He was awesome, and we'll miss him.
2008 Any doubt that Frank Thomas would go into the Hall of Fame ended last year. He hit his 500th career home run, had his second straight big season late in his career, and was not only unscathed by the Mitchell Report, he was the only active player to voluntarily speak with the commission. In conjunction with his performance in front of Congress in 2005, Thomas is almost certain to benefit from a halo effect as a perceived "clean" player, something the steroid-obsessed voting pool will use to push him into Cooperstown. Not that he needs the push, he has been qualified since about 1997 or so. Let's just hope that it's his all-time great peak, not his position on PEDs, that drives the discussion about his career.
2007 Signing Thomas was perhaps the best $500,000 gamble ever; that`s all Thomas was guaranteed when he signed a one-year deal with the A`s last winter. He wound up earning more than $3 million after cashing in most of his bonus clauses (except for the $50,000 Gold Glove bonus, which must have been somebody`s idea of a joke, and a pretty good one). More lucratively, Thomas cashed in after the season with a new deal with the Blue Jays that guarantees him $18 million over the next two seasons, which probably tells you most of what you`d want to know about the financial divide separating the A`s from most of their competitors.
2005 PECOTA has Thomas pegged as entering that Rico Carty or Larry Hisle portion of his career, when he'll be very good when he can play, but won't play very often. Frustratingly, Thomas delayed his ankle surgery until the season was over in October, calling into question whether he'll be ready to go for spring training. Even if he stays healthy, it's unlikely the Sox will pick up his $10 million option for 2006. Given his injury problems and his general surliness, it wouldn't surprise anyone if Thomas retired, which could lead to a tragically bad result in the 2010 Hall of Fame balloting.
2003 Thomas didn’t give the White Sox what they needed in his first full season since his banner 2000 campaign, but to his credit he isn’t resting on his laurels. Reports of a vigorous workout routine and batting practice with Walt Hriniak this off-season point toward a second revival for Thomas at the plate in 2003. He’s campaigned for more playing time at first base, but he’s still a menace to his own team with the glove.
2002 Frank Thomas has had one good year in the last four, and while his two MVPs and career 1000 OPS should still make him a Hall-of-Famer, players whose careers die out swiftly sometimes struggle with the voters. Thomas has 348 home runs and 1,193 RBI, unimpressive totals for a Hall of Fame first baseman. Yes, he should come back and add to those totals, but didn't we all think the same of Dale Murphy at one point?
2001 He had to have endured one of the worst years imaginable in 1999: Frank Thomas got divorced, his agent died on Payne Stewart’s plane, both of his business ventures flopped, and his dad went on dialysis while struggling with heart failure. Thomas paid Walt Hriniak out of his own pocket to help him get his groove back, and it seems to have worked, though he started tinkering with an open stance that eventually reduced his swing to all arms and left him looking weak in the playoffs.

As far as stars bringing in their own coaches, I’m surprised we don’t see more of it. Not every coach has the flexibility to address each player’s strengths and weaknesses, and not every player can learn from every coach. Teams are investing a lot of money in star players, and there are some pretty bad coaches in the game. We’ll be seeing more of this practice in the future, not less.
2000 He’s the best bat in the division not wearing an Indians uniform, and for all of the grief he takes, you'd think he hit like Ozzie Guillen. He came into the year reportedly obsessed with hitting over .300, and during the season focused on that at the expense of his power. A few ill-considered run-ins with umpires on the subject of the strike zone haven't helped him catch any breaks. While everyone in Chicago is talking about trading him, doing so guarantees his contract through 2006 and activates a no-trade clause. There might be a team dumb enough to make that trade, but the Orioles are already paying Will Clark plenty.
1998 Its sort of a shame that the Sox have finally decided he needs to spend more time at DH, because he really has gotten better with the glove. Not good, but better, doing things that would have been impossible four years ago, like throwing accurately to peg the lead runner. Sitting in the ballpark for a Thomas at-bat is a moment that fans pay attention to: people get quiet and watch. Unfortunately, Nancy Faust feels compelled to try to distract us from it.
1997 Thomas is still violently unpopular with carpenters for his unapologetic attitude towards having scabs build his home. It isn’t a big deal, but it is symbolic of organizational unwillingness to apologize for anything. Thomas has been working hard to match Albert Belle’s reputation for pointless surliness: he petulantly stopped talking to the media after it was mentioned that he went berserk after an ejection, going after Robin Ventura in the dugout for some unexplained reason. Not much was made of it in the press, certainly nothing to rival New York Post yellow journalism, but Thomas overreacted and pouted.

As far as baseball was concerned, Thomas really has improved light years in the field. He’s still an awful fielder, but he’s almost mastered the Steve Garvey “Pillar of Salt” technique.
1996  About the only bad thing you can say about him is that he's worked really hard on his defense, and hasn't gotten any better. He did throw somebody out at a base other than first for what seems like the first time this season, surprising those of us in the stands. Still, he can't throw to save his life, and I was really disappointed with Cal Ripken in one game against the Sox. Ripken was running the bases, and was caught in a rundown between Thomas (with the ball) and Guillen. Ripken hesitated to let the lead runner get to third, a textbook maneuver, except that if he'd gone to second, he'd have forced Frank to throw, which might have scored him. There's a lot of sports talk radio whining that he takes too many walks, as if Frank would hit better if he started swinging at pitches he doesn't think he can hit. In this case, ignore the sports fan's prattle.
