He's actually been in a mini-slump this month. Today was only his 3rd homer of July. Thome can be a very streaky hitter, but when he is hot, he is smokin'. Not too sure if he is a solid first rounder, he does strike out a ton. He usually averages about 1 K a game. I guess it just depends on your league's scoring system
He is a top 3 1B nonetheless.
