Thomas coming back to south side?

So the Daily Herald reports in an article today that the White Sox may be reaching out to Frank Thomas about a possible last hurrah with our favorite baseball team.  According to the article  Thomas has been working out and looking to play for a major leauge team. 

Frank Thomas, despite his attitude and occasional quirkiness, is one the best players in to wear a White Sox uniform.  His contributions to this team must never be forgotten.  Tthe face of the franchise for the 90's and he even contributed to the championship season with the amount of home runs he hit.  (Let's face it, with the exception of Marte and Visciano, everyone did)  Although he went down with the injury, he launched the ball many times.  Number 35 is sure to be retired in the next couple years, and this is what's right.

On the other hand, if the Big Hurt comes back here, what the hell do you do with him?  I don't think he can play 1B, even in a bench capacity.  However, I don't think he's humble enough to play on the bench.  There are no spots left.  It would be nice to have another big bat in the lineup for now considering we don't know how much longer Q will be done, but what can you do?

I think the comment Ozzie said does sum up this whole situation quite nicely

"If we try to do something for him, he might get offended, like, 'I'm not ready to quit, I still want to play.' That's why the White Sox have to be careful about what they want to do, what they say, and let Frank make the first decision." 

But can he truly be used, and do we need our baseline clogged with another big bat who can't run while we are in the middle of a dog fight for the Central.

What do you guys think?  Would you welcome Big Frank 35 back and if yes, what do you do with him?
