    Good guys do finish first,I'm glad he hit it with Minny now they can put him on waivers and maybe he'll get to a team with a chance at the World Series.

    Somewhere Barry Bonds is jealous of the attention Thome is getting tonight.

    Just the 5th player to hit 600 home runs cleanly.

    Re: Jim Thome: 600 hrs

    Classy by the Detroit fans to give him the standing ovation (see, we're not all hooligans or "8-Milers" up here...).


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Derek Jeter can take a leak and ESPN has 24/7 coverage, yet Thome doesn't get the credit he deserves. What a stud. Congrats to him and his career.

    No, in fact I'm guessing he retires after this year. He's turning 41 and the past few years he's struggled to stay healthy.

    Five years from retirement, Big Jim, more than likely, will be a first ballot Hall-of-Famer. If he isn't, then some BB writers have some personality issues.


    P.J. Farmer rocks!
