Thome: Round 2?

Believe it or not, the Twins could bring back 42-year-old Jim Thome! Thome, who played for the Twins for almost two full seasons (2010-August 2011), is a free agent and it is said that both he and the Twins are interested in having him return to play in Minnesota.

Even though some may say that Thome is too old to still be playing baseball, I would be really excited to see Thome back in a Twins uniform. Fans love him, which would greatly increase ticket sales (and the Twins need that!). I still believe that Thome, who is 7th all time with 612 home runs, is still a good hitter and could be a big help to the offense. I think the Twins likely would split his playing time between having him come off the bench and having him be the designated hitter. As long as the Twins don’t put him in the field (which would be quite an adventure!) I am all for Thome: Round 2!!

Here’s my prediction: The Twins sign Thome for 1 year right before Opening Day. What’s yours???

  1. Plus, he’s very cute. Nice and burly. 🙂

  2. And, I predict he signs!

  3. I don’t think he is too old ;).
