White Sox GM: 'He's an idiot'
TUCSON, Ariz. -- Former Chicago White Sox slugger, Frank Thomas, and White Sox GM, Kenny Williams, are having an elementary-school fight.
"He's an idiot. He's selfish. That's why we don't miss him," Williams told the Associated Press.
Despite signing with the Oakland Athletics last month, Thomas has made it clear that he didn't appreciate the way his 16-year run with the White Sox ended.
"He's a dickhead," said Thomas of his former GM. "I mean, here I am, the 'big fucking hurt.' And this guy just shoves me aside like he doesn't know I've won two MVPs."
Williams is unhappy that Thomas is still talking about his former team.
"He just needs to move on," said Williams. "He can't keep living in the past. Sure he was great -- he was a true star in this league -- but shit, when was the last time he did anything productive?"
Thomas hit .219 with 12 homers in 105 at-bats last season and was hampered by a bad foot and ankle.
"I'm healthy now," said Thomas. "Real healthy. Just ask any cute girl in the Bay (Area) if I'm healthy. They'll say, "ya, he healthy all right.'"
They don't call him the "Big Hurt" for nothing.
