    Well, early on in Verlander's career, it seemed like he hit one on every at bat, and hit a few more from the on-deck circle. I think the first two years, if Verlander tried to throw one over the press box, Thome would find a way to hit it out.

    I think 513 of those have been against Detroit.

    Especially the way Schlereth was headed. I said to myself about 2 pitches prior, "if he lobs one of those over the plate, we're gonna see it right here". Sure enough, boom.

    From what I've heard and read, Jim Thome is one of the really good guys of the game. Oh, and by the way...........

    I was waiting for it to happen during a day game, where I wouldn't have my normal internet access to put one up.

    Generally I will put up a light for the other team if we're playing like steamed * on soggy bread, or the rare special occasion, like this.

    Uhhh, that was a nice attempt by Revere, good, hard-nosed, and clean, and all that..............but if you're going to run the catcher over, you might at least want to be somewhat close to same size at the catcher in question.

    #599 for Thome.

    And if #600 happens at Comerica, there will be a homer light.

    Delmon could cure AIDS the rest of this season and I still wouldn't be mad about that trade.

    We'll see. I've seen Magglio let flyballs hit him squarely in the buttcheek, and Raburn play left field like an alien just dropped onto planet Earth. *shrug*

    I wouldn't worry about it. The Twins usually give teams 33-34 outs through nine innings this year. That and Liriano can implode at any second.
