Big Hurt Gets a Big Workout

Frank Thomas has been an Oakland Athletic for only a few days. So far he’s hitting .313 with 3 RBIs and 5 walks. But the best part is that last night he hit his first triple…in SIX YEARS.

He also had a single and a double. I don’t quite understand why he wasn’t left in the game to see if he could hit for the cycle. Thomas the Tank has never had a cycle game, so why not let him try for the homer? Especially when you’re up by so much. What difference does it make? The dude’s gonna turn 40 years old in a month, he hit his first triple since 2002…let the man try for his first cycle!

Anyway, I can’t stop watching him leg out that triple and then flop down in the slide. The announcer says that when “you’ve got that big a body, you gotta slide to keep from goin’ off.” Frank does have an ass that makes Yadi Molina look positively svelte, so I would’ve liked to see Frank not be able to stop and plow right into the dugout, taking out two teammates and the batboy or something.

    On the earlier edition of Baseball Tonight, John Kruk and Eric Young couldn’t stop laughing at the site of Frank Thomas chugging around the bases for a triple.

  2. It really is one of the funnier things I’ve seen in awhile.

    And I can’t believe more people weren’t upset on Baseball Tonight that he didn’t get to try for the cycle. It’s not like Frank Thomas gets a triple every day. Once had the 3 basehits out of the way, why not let him try for the homer?

  3. Joe Morgan is certain this is a fluke. He can feel it instinctively.

    at the time frank was pulled, the game was still in doubt, and since frank is not the fleetest of foot, getting the insurance run was deemed to be more important than the slight chance that frank would later be able to hit a homer. it was still a 6-2 game or something
