Hi all. Last year Thome put up some amazing numbers. However, I think the first half of 2003 won't be very productive for him. A majority of the pitchers he will be facing for the first time. Plus, there will be a ton of pressure on him from the Phillie fans, and we all know their reputation. I remember when Griffey switched to the NL I had the same feelings. I thought he would be below par for the first half and I was right. Of course, I was expecting him to break out in the second half of 2000, but that never happened.
So, my question to you all: how well do you think Thome will do this year?
From the official rulebook of baseball: "Baseball is a game played between two teams of nine players each." Therefore, baseball is a game played only in the National League.
