    Thome update:

    He's still old and he's still washed up.

    Nah, actually he's chugging along pretty well for a 41-year-old ballplayer. Even in his geriatric stage, Thome has managed a season OPS of 115. Since joining the O's, he has two home runs and six RBI in 18 games.

    With more playing time, there is a good chance that Thome could pass Reggie Jackson on the all time SO list this season. He is only 81 away from the tie.

    Nice move by Philly to give Thome a chance to play more regularly in the AL, where he can simply be the half-a-player he is.

    A Good move for the Orioles and a good move for Jim.

    IMHO, the best pitcher vs. hitter "face-off", expression wise, occurred during the '97 World Series between Jim Thome and Dennis Cook. Thome would throw that bat and point it out and ole Cook with that "deadpan" stare at the plate. Classic!

    For a " Single-A pitching prospect"? An "Innings-eating starter"?

    Oh well, good for Thome. He had no business in the National League, anyway. His shadow covers more ground than he does at first base.
