Thome done for the season

Postby nsulham » Wed Aug 10, 2005 10:30 pm

ESPN just ran breaking news during the Sox-Rangers game that said Thome is having elbow surgery next week.

Rotoworld:
Jim Thome will have season-ending surgery on his right elbow next week, the Phillies announced.
This comes as quite a surprise. The Phillies are calling Thome's injury a frayed tendon. We imagine that some would have gutted it out and elected for surgery after the season. The Phillies will be OK with Ryan Howard at first base for the rest of the year, but Howard isn't a healthy Jim Thome.


Time for me to go drop him in my keeper league and pick up John Thomson.

I'm dumping Shelton for Howard this week.

Shelton is crashing back to earth in a Bo Hartesque fashion. I live in DET and watch 90% of the Tiger games -- the last 2+ weeks have been pretty bad.

It's because he's facing Jays pitching. :-D I'm sure he'll come out of it, everyone goes through slumps.

This is good news for me....I'm trying to trade N. Johnson to a guy who's had Thome stashed on his DL, holding out hope he'll return and play like Jim Thome for the stretch run. Might help him change his mind a little bit.
