Sad jams for Cleveland fans of a certain age:


It’s hard to see where else he’d go. There just aren’t a lot of teams who could use a DH at the moment. It’s possible that this could be the end if Jim.

    Yankees are probably kicking themselves for signing Hafner right about now.

    Cutting off Jim Thome makes for a nice symbolic castration. It sure beats the real thing.

    Rays should give his agent a call.

    He’ll get a job somewhere if he wants to keep playing. He’s too good of a power hitter, too good of a walk-drawing hitter, too good of a teammate, too valuable a source of hitting information for him to not get a job. His skills have not diminished to the point that he couldn’t justify a roster spot like, say, Jason Giambi.

    Baltimore, Tampa, and Houston could all do well by signing him. Hopefully someone does, but then again I didn’t expect Thome to play for as long as he has, and I was ecstatic to see him get to not only 500, but 600+ home runs.
