First impressions stick. I remember him really pissing off whoever owned him in my rotisserie baseball league during his first few seasons. He was young with great potential, but took 'forever' before he finally busted out.

Even if Thome did do roids he still put up a 1.039 OPS at age 40 like 7 years after testing was instituted.

Beast.

Jim Thome anchored many a High Heat Baseball team for me at 3rd base in the early 2000s.

Also he is a very good internet chatter when he's not foiled by hard returns.

Favorite baseball memory was 97 when the Yanks hit back to back to back homeruns against Cleveland in the playoffs. Part of what made that night special was the way the entire Stadium lovingly serenaded Jim with chants of "Blow me Tho me!!!". I lost my voice and got soaked with beer (Damn Bleacher Creatures) but it was awesome.

it's kinda weird that the guy is gonna get 600 homers and only twice in his career was he ever the best player on his team that season

We used to play home run derby as kids, I would jack up my socks and hold my bat like him out before every pitch. Thome's awesome.

Pretty sure he hit the furthest ball I've ever seen in game 5 of the 1999 ALDS.

And even yelled "get out of here" to it.
