There has been some chatter online on various forums and blogs amongst fans about the possibility of acquiring slugger Frank Thomas. As most of us fans know already, he was released Sunday by the Blue Jays due to his unhappiness with being a part-time player, and lashing out at Toronto management.
Being that he’s available, Oriole fans wonder if he could very well compliment a lineup that lacks a significant power threat, aside from possibly Nick Markakis.
However, as much I and many in Birdland are intrigued by his power and his lofty career numbers — I’ll pass on him.
He might have made for a good, affordable signing circa 2005; however, we have basically two DH’s now with Kevin Millar and Aubrey Huff. As much as I know in my mind, he could easily outslug both of them, even as he is going into his 19th year in the majors, Baltimore does not need him.
