How Can We Trust "The Big Hurt" When We Can't Trust Anyone?

Today is a sad day for myself as I watch my favorite baseball player of all time walk off into the sunset as Frank Thomas announces his retirement today. "The Big Hurt" as Hawk Harrelson named him is by far the greatest player to ever put on a White Sox uniform on the south side.

His career numbers easily makes him a candidate for Cooperstown in 2014 when the likes of Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine (who is also effectively retiring today as well) join Thomas on the ballot. With over 500+ home runs to his name and seemingly holding every offensive record the White Sox have, you would figure he is a shoe in for the hall of fame on the first ballot.

I love the #35, but he is not headed to Cooperstown on the first try.
