Mr. Thome, meet Mr. Robinson

On Tuesday, Jim Thome hit his 586th home run, a towering moon shot in Target Field, tying the great HOFer Frank Robinson in the all-time home run category. I don't know where Thome got his second wind, but I am so glad he was picked up by a team that saw his "youthful" potential. Talk about an eruption!

  1. One of Jimbo's biggest advantages this year is the Twins are giving him plenty of rest, not trying to make him an everyday player. WIth Morneau down, his playing time has increased, but he's still plenty healthy late in the season because his AB's are down.

    And he still looks mighty fine in a Twins uni.
