Congrats to Jim Thome, of the Chicago White Sox, for hitting home run #500!

Thome follows Frank Thomas, a former Sox slugger and a personal favorite, and Alex Rodriguez, of the dreaded Yankees and who I hope the Sox pursue in the off season, in reaching this milestone this year.

It couldn't happen to a better guy. Thome is from Peoria, Illinois... and a real class act. Even on the hated Indians, I enjoyed watching the guy play.

As Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune said in his article, "It's a shame Thome and Frank Thomas didn't get the chance to play alongside each other with the White Sox. That really would have been something to watch."

Oh, Lord, I do so hate the Yankees. That game the other day,k when they came back from 7-0 against Boston.....I could have killed...ALL of them.

The Sox don't have a chance in hell of getting A Rod in the off season because Detroit is going to snatch his ass up.

We have more influential Tigers then the Sox, namely Pug and Kenny who were A Rods teammates for quite a few years.

I dunno -- A-Rod seems rather happy where he is now. Sure, he's one to jump if enough cash is offered, but it's not like the Yankees don't have busloads of cash.
