All letters appropriately crossed and dotted in Thomas deal
by Bob Timmermann
It's finally official that Frank Thomas has signed a 2-year, $18 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays. There is an option for 2009.
Other clauses in Thomas's contract:
1) team officials are contractually prohibited from laughing at Thomas when he asks to use the bathroom instead of the washroom.
2) Canadian customs officials have set up a separate queue at Pearson Airport for Thomas to speed on his way home from road trips.
3) the Toronto Argonauts will play a game under NFL rules for Thomas one day so he won't be confused.
