Don't Look Now- Latest Thome vs. Thomas Comparison

Going into today's play

Frank Thomas (120 games):
410 AB; 36 HR; 98 RBI; .283 AVG; .396 OBP; .566 SLG; .961 OPS

Jim Thome (127 games):
442 AB; 39 HR; 97 RBI; .292 AVG; .415 OBP; .609 SLG; 1.024 OPS

Thome has more runs (102-71) doubles (23-8) and walks (91-73) but also more K's (129-70).  

No matter what happens for the rest of the season, both players have far exceeded my predictions for them.  While Thome maintains the statistical edge, Frank's recent hot streak is making this a very interesting comparison.

Knowing the Big Hurt, he will be highly motivated when the Sox pull into Oakland on Friday.
