    Interesting Thome Tweet

    Just saw this:

    Elias update: Eddie Bajek told me that Jim Thome dropped from Type A in the AL to no type in the NL.
    It sort of is nutty and makes sense at the same time.

    Thoughts?

    Yep. I could see it. He would be grouped with 1B-OF-DH. Because there are so many good 1B & OF in the NL, I could see him dropping out of the top 40 percent of players in his group.

    Man, I was hoping this would be about Jim Thome having a twitter and sending out a message.


    HEY GUYS IT'S JI

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I heard he did gave a funny quote when he found out he'd been traded: "Should I call them and tell them I can't play first base anymore?"
