White Sox Hall of Famer Frank Thomas came on the podcast to talk with Chuck Garfien about his past, baseball's present and the future of the White Sox. He talks about his first major league hit (a stand-up triple!), how fame affected him when he was a player, his appearance on David Letterman in the 1990s and more.
Plus, what was wrong with the baseball this past season? Thomas has some ideas and tells Garfien how many home runs he would have hit with that baseball in his prime. He talks about working with Alex Rodriguez at FOX and what it was like whenever girlfriend Jennifer Lopez came to visit in the studio.
Thomas praises the White Sox rebuild and reveals an idea he presented to GM Rick Hahn about where all the top prospects should play this upcoming season. He describes what it was like going to Roy Halladay's funeral, if he sees the White Sox signing Manny Machado in 2019 and much more.

After spending last week in the Dominican Republic working with White Sox prospect Luis Robert, Aaron Rowand joins the latest episode of the White Sox Talk Podcast to give the inside scoop on the Cuban outfielder who the White Sox signed last season for $26 million and could very well be their center fielder of the future.
Video of Robert on the internet has been scarce, so Rowand fills in a lot of the gaps talking about his bat, defense, speed and personality.
Rowand, now the White Sox minor league outfield and baserunning instructor, also raves about Eloy Jimenez and Micker Adolfo. Plus, he gives us an off-the-radar White Sox prospect who fans should pay more attention to in the future.
