Did the Jays make the right move by releasing Frank Thomas? Mon, April 21, 2008
The Blue Jays and the Big Hurt parted company on Sunday. The Jays didn't want Frank Thomas to stick around and become The Big Pain.
The not-so-stunning development occurred the morning after the Jays told Thomas that he would not be in the lineup as the designated hitter but would be riding the pine on the bench.
On Saturday, Thomas was incensed.
"I didn't expect this at all," he said. "This is a shocker. It's terrible. Don't tell me I can't help this team win.
Were the Blue Jays right in releasing Thomas? Does Thomas still have some juice left to help out another baseball team? Have your say in our forum.
