Hope he's okay. Frank will always be an Oriole.

That said, I'm surprise that more people associated with the Natinals don't have health scares, what given their unwatchable play and all.

Hope Frank is well. People in Cincinnati will disagree with Poopy no doubt. Well, he is used to it, no doubt.

Well, with Poopy all the sh?t used to roll downhill into the Innuh Hahbah back in the day. Can't help but think it had an effect on many Ballimer fans like Poopy.

This guy is not getting any younger. He needs to be honored at Nats Park, before it is to late. The Lerners have learned about spending more, lets see if the get Frank into the park this year!

They need to find a way to get the two Franks (Robinson and Howard) up on that Ring of Honor while they're still around to appreciate being honored.

Ditto FeelWood; My mom(God rest her soul) used to say "i dont won't no flowers at my funeral because i can't smell em" So let's honor the two Frank's while they can still smell them.

Hey Poophead,
When MLB honored the all-century team at the 1999 All-Star Game,note that Frank wore a Reds hat.He played there 10 years,in Baltimore for 6.

When Frank went into Cooperstown it was with an O's cap, far more important than an All-Century team. The lowlife Lerners still haven't recognized the most successful manager in Gnats history, what a shame.
