|Good luck in Baltimore!!!|
The Phils have traded Jim Thome to the Baltimore Orioles for minor league prospects Gabriel Lino (a catcher) and Kyle Simon (right-handed pitcher). The trade will allow Thome to get a lot more playing time as the DH (Designated hitter) for the Orioles.
I am sad to see Thome go even though I understand why the trade was made. I do wish Thome good luck in Baltimore and I will be rooting for him. He is truly a class act.
Thome's final stats as a Phillie this year are 9 Runs Scored, 15 RBIs, 5 Home Runs and 8 Walks.
Talk to you soon,
