OK, since the latest baseball drama involves my favorite player, the talented-yet-oh-so-egotistical Frank Thomas, I feel obliged to write a plea to the Oakland A's in his defense. That was a good year in 2006, Oakland. Remember it? Remember going to the playoffs, the bobbleheads, and roaring, packed stadium? The Oakland A's were serious contenders, and part of that had to do with the seasoned leadership of Frank Thomas. I know, much has been made of his diva antics this past weekend, but he was genial in Oakland, and his experience helped make that team what it was: playoff-worthy contenders.
The A's should make the best of an unforeseen series of fortuitous coincidences. The Mariners and Angels are not as dominant as people expected them to be, yet the A's have far surpassed anyone's expectations; and now Thomas is available, and without denting Oakland's wallet, would probably play anywhere so that he has a chance to rectify his career. Take advantage of this situation now, before the Mariners or the Angels do, and bring Frank Thomas back to Oakland. Besides, I never got a bobblehead last time... Maybe I can get one now!
