He back.

Thankfully, mercifully, finally--Frank Thomas is ready to go.

Thomas will probably be eased into the lineup over the next week or so, but after the grace period he should absolutely be getting a full complement of at bats as the DH. The Sox need Big Frank in there, whether that is immediately apparent or not. Hopefully Ozzie Guillen won't have a quick hook if Thomas struggles out of the gate. It's probably going to take him some time to feel comfortable (the numbers from his rehab stint were poor) considering he hasn't played since last June or July.

The Twinkies are back to within 3.5 games, and I'm getting nervous. I liked it a lot better when they were 5 back.

The White Sox had a rough trip to Arlington; returning to the Cell should help.
