Joe Posnanski takes a step back and points out how freaking good freshly-retired Frank Thomas was in his prime. I still remember getting his rookie card - which featured a picture of him at Auburn - and being blown away; he looked like the tight end he was and not a baseball player (and not a placekicker, which he also was in high school).

Also, dude warmed up WITH REBAR.
