Phillies sign Jim Thome

So, does he get cheered or booed?

 

Why would they boo him? I thought he's well-loved everywhere, including my heart.

 

And naturally, being in Philadelphia, nothing will make any sense.

 

Interesting tidbit. We've come across friendly Nationals fans on the internet. We've come across friendly Braves fans on the internet. We've surprisingly come across a surplus of friendly Mets fans on the internet. But have you ever seen a friendly Phillies fan on the internet?

I've met Thome before.. literally the nicest man on the planet.

 

 

That's what everyone seems to say. I have nothing but respect for the man and think he doesn't get nearly as much as attention as he should. 1st ballot HOF'er and I believe it should be unanimous. Of course, it won't be. But it should.

Apparently he's coming off the bench, not starting at 1st.

 

I see the Phils starting John Mayberry, Jr. at first base while Howard's out.

 

 

And Howard improved a lot defensively this year, I noticed. [Replying to Erick's (probably sarcastic) comment about Howard's defense.]

UZR rated it as his 2nd worst season. BR.com's fielding stat had it as his 3rd worst.
