He is the White Sox all-time leader in home runs, RBIs, doubles, runs, walks, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, extra base hits, total bases, on and on and on

He is Big.
He can Hurt.
Hell be Frank.
His last name is Thomas.

And this season, the greatest hitter in the 110-year history of the White Sox will be
joining Comcast SportsNet for all Sox home games in 2010.

Am I excited? That would be a Hawk Harrelson, Yes!!!!

It should make for some fun and intriguing television, not to mention add a whole bunch of homers to the Pre and Post-Game Live set. Frank Thomas (521), Bill Melton (160), Chuck Garfien (0).

Frank did some work with us last year during the Crosstown Series and showed a ton of TV potential. He has the knowledge, the contacts (I think he knows some people), and the passion to be really good at this.

Sunday, he interviewed Ozzie Guillen for a piece we will run on the Sox pregame show tomorrow (12pm on CSN). It went great. But Frank wasnt satisfied. I can do better, and I will, he said.

Besides joining Bill and I in the studio, hell also be doing segments at the ballpark. Want to see Frank in the cage with Gordon Beckham? Done. How about Frank sitting down with Jim Thome when the Twins come to town? Done.

Or, Frank putting the past behind him and speaking with Sox GM Kenny Williams?

Hmmmm. That might come sooner than you think.

Were looking forward to having a lot of fun this season, and not take ourselves too seriously. It all begins on Monday. Baseball.its finally here.
