    Frank Thomas released by Jays

    I guess they were not too happy with his tirade yesterday. He has been brutal this season though.

    No. He's been a DH for a decade now.

    I would just wait a couple days to get a sense of what may happen to Frank. Frank has more value then all those guys as long as he has a regular spot in the lineup
