Feel-good note of the day... 

Justin Thompson made his first appearance for Frisco last night.

Thompson, of course, came to Texas in the Juan Gonzalez trade after the 1999 season, and hasn't pitched in the majors since August of 1999. His outing yesterday is one more step in his attempt to return to the majors.

Thompson has undergone a lot of surgery, and a lot of grueling rehab, over the past several years. With the money he has made during his career, it would have been easy for him to retire, walk away, and move on with his life. But he has persevered, has fought his way back, and may now have the chance to resume his major league career as a reliever.
