I'm not inviting these guys to my next dinner party

Frank Thomas in the Daily Southtown.

Thomas: Don't you think I deserve that respect to get that done? Been voted the century's No. 1 player in your organization? I own every record in that organization. Don't you think I should have deserved a little more respect than that? Thomas: Exactly. Most definitely. And I've put out a lot of good over my career and time. I'm just telling you right now — wholeheartedly, I was extremely loyal to that organization from Day 1. Extremely loyal. Believe me, I've been slighted more than once over there. More than once.

But I've held the high road. I've always held my chin high and was the bigger man in a lot of situations over there. Whenever things went bad, who was the one guy they always came to? Who was the one guy they always came to when the (stuff) hit the fan for that organization? Me. Who always stuck up for the organization. Me. Always.

Kenny Williams responds to the Associated Press.

"He's an idiot. He's selfish. That's why we don't miss him," Williams said, responding to a Thomas interview that appeared in The Daily Southtown, a newspaper in the Chicago suburb of Tinley Park, Ill.

"Jerry has done everything over the course of 16 years to protect that man, to make accommodations for him, concessions for him. He loaned him money, at times, when he needed money," Williams said.

"If he was any kind of a man, he would quit talking about things in the paper and return a phone call or come knock on someone's door. If I had the kind of problems evidently he had with me, I would go knock on his door," he said.

You have to think that Robinson's experience may pay off in this area. But Ozzie has the advantage of not knowing when to keep quiet.

Billy Beane is not exactly Mr. Sensitive. I wonder how that's going to go.

4 - Don't forget about their new outfield import from LA either (not Ethier).

Frank Thomas is the best White Sox player ever isn't he? Or in the eyes of Kenny Williams and Ozzie Guillen is it Joe Crede? Or Jermaine Dye?

Maybe they think it's Tadahito Iguchi.

It wasn't smart for Kenny to say those things - but, that doesn't make them any less true.

Frank has done nothing but bitch for years.
