Thank You, Jim Thome

Before this blog turns to the negative posts that will likely dominate the month of September, I want to take a moment to thank Jim Thome for a lot of great memories.

For two decades, Thome was the bane of existence to our pitching staffs.  In less than two years, however, he endeared himself to the state of Minnesota like almost no other ballplayer in team history…

From a home run off the flagpole, to one over the batting eye, to one 490 feet away, to two in Detroit for 600, Thome gave us some special moments in a short time span.

He’s a class act, a true gentleman, and I wish him the best in Cleveland and beyond.

Just try not to clobber around our starters too much in September, will ya Jim?!

Preview (55-77, 4th, 11 GB CWS): Brad Penny (9-9, 4.82) vs. Brian Duensing (8-13, 5.12)
