Nov 4 Jim Thome a Twin? The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports the Twins have had conversations with the Phillies regarding a possible trade for first baseman Jim Thome, where the Phillies would have to pick up a good share of Thome's contract. Thome is still owed $43.5 million over the next three years.
Views: There is no way the Twins can afford Thome's salary, so Philly would definitely have to pick up a large portion of it. Thome is expendable since the Phillies seem prepared to move forward with Ryan Howard, who hit .283 with 22 home runs and 63 RBI in just 312 at bats as a rookie. Thus, if it's not the Twins, Thome will likely be dealt somewhere this winter.
