All letters appropriately crossed and dotted in Thomas deal

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.

Is that a team option? If so, there was some breathless reporting floating around about a $30 million deal that was, er, how do you say it, rather wrong.

I couldn't determine right away how the option worked.

The SF Chronicle said there were vesting incentives...if he stays healthy, the third year will vest.

My goodness, can any team afford to have two turtles like Glaus and Thomas on the basepaths at the same time?

Alex Rios better pray he is batting in FRONT of them next year.

See my vest, see my vest,
Made from real gorilla chest,
Feel this sweater, there's no better,
Than authentic Irish setter.

7. Better two turtles on the bases than two rabbits not on them.

Maybe the Jays can bring in Dusty Baker to find ways of unclogging the bases. A small application of Nefi Perez would do the trick.

Speaking of toques, when are the Jays finally gonna man up and start using that home field to their advantage??

Can you say OUTDOOR BASEBALL GAMES.....oh wait, nevermind.
