    Re: Thome to Indians

    Sweet! Love the Indians and Thome...it'll be cool to see him hopefully finish his career where it started



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: Thome to Indians

    I was hoping that he would go to a contender. Would like to see him get a WS ring. There are officially 0 interesting story lines left for the 2011 Twins.
    Funny thing is, they are giving away Jim Thome wind up walking toys at Target field tomorrow.

    Re: Thome to Indians

    So why does baseball have a trade deadline?

    Re: Thome to Indians

    For as many home runs he hit against the Twins with the Indians and White Sox, I'm glad I got a chance to see Thome play for the Twins and got a chance to learn how much of a class act he is on and off the field.

    I wouldn't be overly surprised if that's what this is about. The Twins aren't contending. Thome has his 600 homeruns, and he's not hitting dingers at anywhere near his old pace. I'd bet money that he retires after this season.


    Hawks tell us we have no future, and we let you know what we think of Hawk fans, which is a lower opinion all the time. CycloneErik 7/25/2011

    With the exception of tm3308. He is a good contributor on this site. It is almost to the point that I question if he is actually a hawk fan. -- Cyclonestate78 7/25/2011

    He broke the mold. If he wrote the OP, I would have read the whole thing. CycloneErik 7/25/2011

    Re: Thome to Indians

    As a Twins fan, I'm happy to see Thome get a chance to go back to Cleveland and perhaps finish his career with the team where it started. Just glad he joined the 600 club in a Twins uniform.

    Incidentally, apparently, his first major league start was almost exactly 20 years ago, when the Cleveland Indians took on... the Minnesota Twins.

    I'd hoped he would be able to pass of Sosa before hes done but I too think this year is it and he likely won't make it.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
