Let's do this.

Todd Zolecki is reporting that the Phils reached a one-year agreement with Jim Thome.

I hope no one is expecting him to play the field. I bet he can't even stand at 1st base for nine innings let alone field anything.

I'll take his bat off the bench though.

This. I can't imagine them doing anything other than PH/DH him.

Thome is the 2012 answer to Matt Stairs. A Homerun threat off the bench. Plus he is an all class dude that the fan base already loves. I don't get how anyone can dislike this move.

Plus this means goodbye Ross gload, also ibanez

Watching the press conference now. Thome is the classiest guy ever.

I'm stoked. Anyone who thinks this is a bad move is retarded. Its a one year deal which means they got him dirt cheap. They'll platoon him and Mayberry, Jr. at first until Howard is back to playing every day then they'll probably platoon Thome and Howard at the position just to be safe. The man has 600+ career home runs and is still a valuable threat at the plate. I welcome him with open arms.


Also, don't be surprised if Ibanez stays for cheap. He's insane if he wants to end his career somewhere else. He had a solid 2011 season and to be honest I'd be more comfortable with him and Mayberry playing left.
