And then there were two... Thome hits HR 598!

Earlier tonight, er last night, Jim Thome hit HR 598, bringing him just 2 knocks away from joining the 600 Club.  Of course, most people don't know this.  In fact, many folks, even baseball fans, have no idea.  Why not?  Because Thome is a nice guy who doesn't do drugs.  He was even voted Sports Illustrated "Nicest guy in baseball."  CONGRATS, Mr. Thome!  I can't wait to see the next two!

  1. I hope he gets there quicker than he did #500. He was with the White Sox then and if I remember right, he got stuck on #499 for awhile. Or at least awhile for him, anyways. I like him as well because of the nice guy factor.
