Say you were given a team in 1990 and were allowed to have one first baseman from that point until 2004. Who would you take?
I saw on ESPN.com that Gary Gillette had a column on why Frank Thomas is not Hall-worthy. It was an Insider column (shocked that Gary Gillette would write something for which money would have to exchange hands in order to have it read) so I'll never know what he has to say. I'm sure it's something along the lines of the last decade has produced so many superior hitters to Frank Thomas that he'll fall through the cracks. May well be. It's a crummy stance to take, though, as we have seen in recent postings.
