Big Hurt Hobbled

Posted in Baseball at 10:17 am by

Chicago’s Frank Thomas (above) returned from his Charlotte, NC rehab assignment yesterday, just in time to strain his right hip flexor in his team’s 5-4 win over the Angels.

On the same afternoon the White Sox announced a contract extension for manager Ozzie Guillen, it would seem as though GM Kenny Williams has been wise not to negotiate a new pact with Thomas, much as letting Magglio Ordonez walk has yet to kill Chicago.

The Rangers Are In First Place Because : Kenny Rogers, 5-0 with a 0.92 ERA in the month of May. The guy is amazing when pitching in a place where no one gives a shit.

    Seriously. I recall he had a hell of a year last year too, but my NYM loyalty kept him the hell away from my fantasy squad, despite his being readily available for most of the season. Can’t forgive.

    I first started following the Oakland A’s in 1998. That was their last really bad year (until this one). Kenny Rogers went 16-8 for that team. Great performance when nobody gave a shit.
