The Sports Bank:
Retired Chicago White Sox legend Frank Thomas has two homes listed for sale, one in Libertyville, Illinois and the other just outside Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s asking for a combined $4.45 million for the two properties.
Frank Thomas, “The Big Hurt,” is one of the most decorated players in White Sox history. He won a World Series with the club in 2005, and played his final game in 2008. He now works for Comcast SportsNet as an analyst and promotes his malt liquor tasting type drink: Big Hurt Beer.
From the Chicago Tribune:
In 2003, Frank Thomas paid $2.35 million for the five-bedroom, 7,731-square-foot house on a half-acre lot on the Rio Secco golf course in Henderson, Nev. Last month, he listed the home for $2.5 million.
Agent Kendall Towers, whose husband, retired major league pitcher Josh Towers, is a former teammate of Thomas’, declined to comment on the listing.
On Sunday, Frank Thomas listed his six-bedroom, 5,793-square-foot house in Libertyville for $1.95 million.

When he was hitting this past Thursday in Toronto, Viciedo strained his oblique with one...

The White Sox were unable to win the series against the Blue Jays, falling 3-1 today to earn a split against the team from north of the border. With that, our Palehose end the road trip with a less than stellar 3-7 record, and you can bet the house that Robin and the boys are more than happy to head back to the Southside.
Well, it certainly was an...
