The Hurt Goes On: Thomas Staying Put

He hit .267 last season with 42 HR and 105 RBI in 153 games.
After telling his teammates of his decision to stay with the Sox rather than test the free agent market as he did following 2002, Thomas' agent, Arn Tellem, also issued a statement: "After weighing our options, we felt the best decision for Frank was to return to the White Sox," said Tellem. "I know Frank would like nothing better than to help the White Sox win a World Series title."
