CHICAGO (AP) - Retired Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas says he feels even better about his career after watching steroids-tainted stars Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens fail to gain entry to the Hall of Fame.
The Big Hurt also believes he should make it on his first try next year.
Thomas said Saturday that ``watching all the nonsense unfold'' makes him feel ``prouder'' of his career.
Bonds, Sosa and Clemens were denied in their first year of eligibility amid suspicions by some voters that their accomplishments were boosted by performance-enhancing drugs. Mark McGwire, 10th on the career home run list, received 16.9 percent of the vote on his seventh try, far short of the 75 percent needed for election.
