Thome’s Message

I love Jim Thome.  He’s the only player I cover any more that’s older than me.  And with such experience comes wisdom.  

A few hours before the Orioles face the Rays, still  hoping to somehow win the A.L. East or at least guarantee another game at Camden Yards, Thome has a message for his team.

He reminds his younger mates, two of whom are less than half his age, to relax and understand that no matter what the Orioles have made the post season.  But more  importantly, for them to cherish every moment of this incredible journey.

I could tell them the same things, but of course they would mean nothing. But coming from a man with 612 career home runs, and a man who has played in the post season in nine different seasons, it means the world. Image
