As Ken Rosthenthal notes:
“Love these notes on Jim Thome from
@MLBNetwork’s fabulous research department: Thome had higher OBP than Rickey Henderson. Hit home runs at rate eclipsed only by Bonds, Ruth, McGwire. Hit exactly as many postseason homers as Ortiz in 102 fewer plate appearances. Hall of Famer!”
When you consider that Bonds and McGwire were enhanced in ways Thome was not, it’s even more impressive.
Thome was great. I loved watching him play. Congratulations, Jim!
