Welcome home, Thome!

Can't believe I didn't blog about this earlier, but it happened on Turkey Day, so that's to be expected.

Jim Thome just signed with the White Sox.

(Don't forget to check the Sun-Times Sports page too).

This is of course part of a trade for Aaron Rowand, who I hate to see go, but I think it's a great move for the Sox, if Thome can stay healthy. The Sox can then fill CF with a promising rookie in Brian Anderson, and pick up a much needed (big) left handed bat for the middle of the order. Thome, an Illinois native, can play 1B or DH, so if they pick up Paulie, they can switch off, or if they lose him, it'll give them more flexibility in finding someone to fill his position.

Ideally, we could keep Paulie and have an even stronger lineup for next year. PLEASE OH PLEASE OH GOD!

Ahem, how many days 'til pitchers and catchers report?
