He is and always will be one of my all time favorite players and I agree he never gets enough praise. He also hit some clutch late homeruns last year as a PH and still has some power. But as you guys said, not really a lot of room on the roster as it is for anyone off the bench when we have Paul, Donald, Heisey, possibly Rolen, there just doesn't seem to be a place for him, although I would never mind having Thome representing my franchise both on and off the field.
