Jim Thome

Good luck in Baltimore!!!
Hi everybody,

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,
Little Chase
