Re: Reds really should sign Jim Thome
His numbers are actually pretty good..even besides the fact he's a bit of a shadow of his former self
From 2008-2012 (from age 37-42, his decline years so to speak)
.255 Batting Average
105 HR, 301 RBI's
Seriously, those numbers aren't to shabby. Even in a down year he's still producing more than any scrub we had on the bench the past few years. Plus his veteran leadership, and good guy personality will surely make a more friendlier clubhouse atmosphere in the long run (which is always a key aspect in a successful playoff run)
Not saying that I WANT him necessarily, but I wouldn't get mad if Jocketty for some reason wanted to pick up Thome instead of Rolen.
