Jim Thome the new DH for the World Champion Chicago White Sox is on fire! The fire started Sunday March 26th versus the Kansas City Royals. In that game Thome hit his first two homers of the spring going three for four with three RBI and three runs scored, Sox won 9-7. The next day against the dreaded Cubs Jim hit two more longballs going four for five with three RBI and two runs scored, tie game 4-4. His two homers a day took Tuesday off as Thome was one for four with a double on Tuesday in a 3-1 loss to the D*Backs. But Jim was back on track on Wednesday incredibly hitting two more balls over the wall going two for three with a walk, three RBI and two runs scored besting the Brewers 5-4. I know it’s just spring training, but anytime a guy hits six taters in four games it’s noteworthy. Kenny Williams took a lot of heat trading fan favorite Aaron Rowand for Jim Thome who was injured last year. It was also questioned why Williams would trade for injured Thome and allow Frank Thomas to exit stage left. But who’s laughing now? I predict Thome will hit 40+ homers this season for the Southsiders. GO SOX GO!!!

  1. Some may not know this but Thome is from “down the road” in Peoria, IL.

  2. That’s right BZ (Teddy Ballgame doing his best DJ imitation), another newcomer Rob Mackowiak is from nearby Oak Lawn and was a HUGE White Sox fan growing up. Rob enjoyed watching Baines, Raines, & Ozzie Guillen play for the Southsiders when he was a boy, now they’re his coaches, which seems like a dream come true.
