My jaw was hanging open when I caught the news of the Thome trade, while walking on the treadmill at the gym two days ago. I am a major league Jim Thome fan! I'm happy that I have Thome t-shirts and jerseys in my closet. I'll wear them proudly next baseball season, while rooting for my boys in red and white!
I copied this post from TrekMedic251. He worded it so well...
Goodbye, Good Luck, Godspeed
Phils to get Rowand for Thome
Tentative deal has Phillies sending cash to White Sox
Well,..you're only as good as your last at-bat, but let me be one among many to wish a fond farewell to Jim Thome.
Jim was a consummate professional and a gentleman. He was a paragon of good sportsmanship and we all wish him well in Chicago. And,..if the White Sox get to Philadelphia, the first cheesesteak at Tony Luke's is on me. Thanx!
And to Ryan Howard: these are big shoes you'll be filling in 2006! Please,..don't break our hearts!
"Hear! hear!", Trek!
