Ed Randall recently had Ed Kranepool on his "Talking Baseball" program, which airs on Sunday mornings for two hours here in the New York City area on WFAN. They spoke at some length about Frank Thomas. I had not known that when Kranepool came up he was roomed with Thomas, who was many years his senior in age, as Kranepool was literally a kid. Both he and Randall had nothing but superlatives for Thomas as a ballplayer, and more importantly as a person. They still talk to each other regularly, and Kranepool was very touched that with all the things someone approaching 90 has to deal with, Thomas was most concerned with how Eddie was doing. I have great memories of Frank Thomas whacking home runs into the left field stands at the old Polo Grounds in those early Met years.
