CTL on Big Hurt's HOF shot
I loved what he said. They made their -- not get a lie and it that was their decision to cheat those numbers are fake. Now the question is. This frank get caught up in the -- were writers go spirit are not knowing anybody but I think that maybe it's the opposite that they -- those this is the guy who. Never really. His numbers are sick. That's how good they are first seven years better than Ruth. Better than Gary -- Santo you -- -- you and Dave big guy his numbers are better and he did at the right way he should be a lock first ballot hall. I I I totally agree you know when you when you watch Frank Thomas play. When he was at the plate and I guarantee there were people who wouldn't leave. They wouldn't leave the television until after he had bad it. Because I -- you -- for some reason you know it's just natural ability. So when you saw you know watch Sammy are Barry Bonds and McGwire you're -- you know awful that they were gonna do Jack it out but there was something behind it. There was something behind Jerry -- the best Brothers and every -- get a would very heavy very. The pure athlete what you saw whom you know bulk up then and you see I'm just demolished in all these rev Wright never can put it looks like. Why I think one of the things that's going to be a challenge win. Any one writers stands. Players of value -- the situation is in this era. It seems like there's a cloud of doubt over for everyone and it's it really seems like unfortunately there has to be I don't know. How close you you can look at it and and not feel that way when we know what we did. About what was morneau went on him like Brett was asked over the weekend at the convention. Is he a first ballot hall of Famer here's how big her respond. Of course that is one of the night and -- of course a little I guess that I got I think my resume speaks for itself. They'll lose a third MVP took a guy look at who admitted he was TV. I think. That would put them on the level that only a couple of guys -- -- his game so. And it -- twelve year old I had was incredible. There is horrible so. I think I've done enough to differs little holes that. He was a big guy playing football Auburn he's a big guy Major League Baseball is a big guy today you look at some of these other guys Sammy. Bonds. They shrink. Its like. Yeah what do you think that would give -- fifty pounds lighter. They go up and down right was what he was and to me. -- there's never been in. Unanimous hall of Famer which I don't understand the lead but if you look at his numbers how could -- not -- and he won't be the he'll be I would think the first ballot. Was credited 75% and with. The suspicion it's already cloud in some against the incidents that have gone under the belt before him certainly he's gonna have -- A strong. Chance to to get an extra I would have to believe you know you know I -- -- -- -- -- skins and it's been and I really appreciate infrequently I wish I knew. Then what I know now I would appreciate it even more and I want to be even closer look he had a terrific career it was always sports -- -- Grudges against some guys that won't vote for but -- doesn't it's a misrepresent. With people. Pretty much assured he'd do anything that I don't understand of the process with a -- of. Hey you know I and I think baseball and the fans in general what will look at as a breath of fresh air sort of -- you know because you you actually have a guy who played during the era. Who I -- thrill of the speak out and voice his opinion strongly. Just this week criticism of others that could I think that's great I think it's fantastic but I think it's you think he's phentermine is is does -- say hey I. I never did anything wrong. I stand on my record my rather they judge me on that and I think the Ryder than and you know the voters I think in all -- placenta -- -- of the the other -- Is he have to be careful now not to be looked at by some voters going your campaigning again. Well and nobody say we're going over our look at my numbers look what they did a really made insanely yet you know and he he was asked the questions. Then the answer them honestly I think if we hear Frank Thomas. Say the same stuff five times between now. And when they vote. Next year yet been made you feel like -- Campaign from -- little bit but sentiments expressed that he was asked the questions he spoke his mind. I I appreciate I refresher Dotel I love the fact that he stood up there with his comments about seeing -- bonds. Love them yet but he did CNN those comments now you know you don't need do parade around it and be repeating it to. Everywhere -- really don't -- all my guys I I. -- on the flip side I think maybe he should. -- his own horns sort of speak because he don't wanna get lumped into this steroid era he's so I don't have to I don't wanna have the paid a price. For the fans of these other guys shouldn't I and -- I think it's almost a -- for him that this step up and say hey listen. I'm frank Thomas and these -- my -- than this -- I've done and if he's got to say it and get a campaign going I -- bluff of not. I think he deserves and I can't remember that yeah -- you know so those guys the most hitters have better numbers than he did. But he's also go against pitchers who -- doing it three -- a significant threat to Clemens you know. So if those if pitchers and been doing it media 500 home -- you know so it's just. He was that good in people don't look at that and realize that you know -- form just because there's no. You know this that you're has been tarnished it's just the wrong thing.
