Athletics pick up former White Sox 1B, Frank Thomas

Oakland Athletics

Bitchin'.

The A's pick up White Sox veteran Frank Thomas for a one year deal. He gets a guaranteed $500,000, plus up to $2.6 million in bonuses if he says healthy through the season. The White Sox cast the veteran adrift in 2005 because of his injuries. That's really the big question: will we get the Frank Thomas that played 153 games in 2003 and batted .271 with 87 runs, or the Frank Thomas of 2005 that played only 34 games and had only 19 runs?

One thing I know: I'll be watching. ๐Ÿ™‚

Simplest DIY motor demo

Courtesy of superpositioned.com, here's just about the simplest motor that I can imagine. Only 4 parts (battery, wire, screw, magnet). Too cool.
