He is the White Sox all-time leader in home runs, RBIs, doubles, runs, walks,  slugging percentage, on-base percentage, extra base hits, total bases, on and on and on…

He is Big.
He can Hurt.
He’ll be Frank.
His last name is Thomas.

And this season,  the greatest hitter in the 110-year history of the White Sox will be
joining Comcast SportsNet for all Sox home games in 2010.

Am I excited?   That would be a Hawk Harrelson “Yes!!!!”

It should make for some fun and intriguing television, not to mention add a whole bunch of homers to the Pre and Post-Game Live set.   Frank Thomas (521),  Bill Melton (160), Chuck Garfien (0). …


Frank Thomas will work between 65-70 White Sox home games as part of the Comcast SportsNet pregame and postgame coverage team. The part-time move to Chicago also presents Thomas the chance to see his son, Sterling, play baseball in his senior year of high school. …

My question is, does Ozzie have a team that can win? I was reading Joe Posnanski, America’s Greatest Living Sportswriter, and he dropped a stat that boggled me: The team that put more runners on base won 83 percent of the time in 2009.

Have the White Sox taken the correct steps to be the team that puts more runners on base on a given night in 2010? I’m going to skip a monstrous analysis and just look at players’ 2009 on-base percentages. …

Opening Day lineup

1. Juan Pierre LF
2. Gordon Beckham 2B
3. Carlos Quentin RF
4. Paul Konerko 1B
5. Mark Kotsay DH
6. Alex Rios CF
7. A.J. Pierzynski C
8. Mark Teahen 3B
9. Alexei Ranmirez SS
Mark Buehrle is pitching (will be his club-record 8th Opening Day start)

The Sox could use a .360 wOBA in DH. Anyone? Anyone?
