Jim Thome hits #600

Postby AquaMan2342 » Mon Aug 15, 2011 9:41 pm

Jim Thome becomes the 8th player in MLB history to hit 600 homers. He's the 6th to do it without being positively tested for steroids and the 5th to do it without doing steroids.

You might as well end the Twins season now. There's nothing else to see other than getting a possible top 5 pick. Yep, it's been that bad.

It was nice that the off day scheduling allowed for Thome in my fantasy lineup however.

Surefire HOF and one of the greatest hitters of all time.

I do wish I had a notification system for posts like those. Perhaps Madison can set that up for me.

I certainly don't discount the possibility that he was.

i'm so sick of people praising him for being clean...

just because his name was never found during investigations doesn't mean he's clean...
