Frank the Tank Blasts the Players Associaton - and your mom

By
Training camps finally got underway last week, with pitchers & catchers reporting to camp ahead of the rest of the teams. I caught an interview with Frank Thomas on Monday, with him speaking out against the Mitchell report.

“I'm glad I did speak out because if I didn't, I would've been on that list of 'Wouldn't talk to George Mitchell”. To me, it's just one of those things where I'm more disappointed with the players association because I know the way they didn't want guys participating. I feel that this is over with now and we've got to move forward”.

Wow - that’s a pretty big swing at the player’s association, but I’d say it’s pretty warranted. If more players were co-operative with Mitchell, then maybe we wouldn’t have a big as a problem. Though, it’s good to see that one of the good guys (Thomas) is clean, and that his career is untarnished. There would be nothing worse to have his name revealed on the Mitchell report.

For the mostpart, Frank the Tank has the same perspective as most - the past is the past, so let’s work towards the future. He suggests that there should be tests for everything; which really wouldn’t be so bad. Though I’m sure there are some players who wouldn’t be thrilled that the world knows they caught crabs from Alyssa Milano. Eeeeew!
