Jim Thome rejoins the Phillies
Fan favorite (or Phan Phavorite if you're one of those people) Jim Thome will be returning to the Philadelphia Phillies for the 2012 season. The 41 year old recently hit his 600th career homerun, and signed a one year contract with the Phils today, pending a physical. Perfect low-key signing if you ask me, since Thome is a marked improvement over Ross Gload as a left handed pinch hitter/first baseman with power.
