Frank Thomas Reviews

I am rolling with Trout MVP, Springer postseason, Walker, Gwynn, Jackson prestige, Dawson in OF

Belli is playing 1B for me. How has Thomas been for everyone? Might pick as bench bat vs LHP

SDS

I am a .198 hitter and he is hitting .457 for me.

I have noticed that opponents throw inside more against Frank, so be aware of that.

Thanks. I am interested to hear others too but this helps me in taking him

Fellow Mets fan. I wouldn't steer you wrong. I save that for Phillies phans.

I took him in showdown (I know, I know — should have chosen Harper to face Johnson) and I remember hitting a couple tanks and a ton of weak choppers back to the mound.

Couldn’t care less how good or bad he is, tbh. I’m a Sox fan and grew up in the 90s, so Frank was my hero. I’ll be choosing him when I get to 300 this weekend

Same here with Sale, just bought him once I could lol. If Frank makes my starting lineup I'm keeping him, I'm gonna have 150k stubs on the bench tho lol. I should get 300 very soon! I'm at 230 and don't have sig strikeouts or Lester yet

Now that SS Bumgarner is out, I need to pick up Madbum and Sale to round out the rotation on my “All-Time Psychopaths” theme team.

What exactly is this "All-Time Psychopaths" team? 😂

SDS

I have not used Frank yet but with Ruth dropping it would be hard to pick him over Harper. Musial and Ruth seem to be the way to go. Please whatever you do don’t pick Walter 🙏 lol

I feel like I could put together a team with 25 certifiable nut jobs, but right now it’s just a hypothetical team. And, sadly, it would never be complete unless SDS gives us John Rocker.

I will never get Ruth so I am going at it with no Ruth in thoughts

Why does bumgarner make that team? Sale without a doubt, that was confirmed after he tore up those jerseys lol but bumgarner has been a competitor and really only had problems with puig, but at least when he gets into it with someone he actually wants to fight compared to the Astros coach haha

haha You had me at .198. I guess I'm picking up Big Hurt! That 125/125 against lefties is spectacular.

Three weeks ago i was a .167 hitter. I switched to game mode on my tv and now look at me....almost over the Mendoza line. So proud.

I just find him to be whiny and act like a boomer even though he’s only 31. He’s always chirping when guys bat flip or pump home runs.

SDS

I picked him and super happy. He hits easy homers. I think I'm hitting one with him every 5abs. Pick him. You won't regret it!

I can see that. I’ve just always seen him as the last real old school pitcher. Some might think it’s outdated but I’ve never had a problem with a guy brushing a hitter back after he’s done a bat flip letting him know that ya you might be happy about it but don’t get comfortable in the box. I think in the past he said ya let the boys be boys, but that goes both ways. I could only imagine how some of the hitters that strike out a lot but pimp a home run when they get it would react if every time they got struck out the pitcher did a little pimp job of their own, that would be interesting to see.

Side note though, I think brushing guys back is something that needs to come back in the game. There is actual strategy to it to make a pitcher more effective. Just look at former intimaters in the game Ryan, Johnson, Clemons, they were hard to hit in the first place but every once in a while when they felt a guy was too comfortable in the box they knock them off the plate. That uneasiness led to guys being even more dominant. Too many guys are too comfortable in the box now taking massive swings, I look at when Stanton got hit in the face a few years back. There was no intent behind the pitch it slipped and it was a bad accident, but I also think Stanton is somewhat to blame. He completely committed to the pitch with no fear or thought that he could get hit because he was so comfortable in the box that he gave him self no way to get out of the way of the pitch because he had no internal instinct/fear that he could get hit in the head. That actually makes me worry about future players getting hit in the face for that same reason.

I'm interested in who is on your team. Trevor Bauer and Dibble have to be on there? Hunter Strickland?
