i agree with you. kinda shameful trying to claim him like this.
Yeah, agreed too. I love Thome, even when he was an Indian. I always felt he was a throwback to the old school type of ballplayer. I'm thrilled that he's part of our organization. But just 4 years playing with the Sox and they retire his number? Sorry, that's just plain dumb.
maybe we should also retire richie allen's number. perhaps tom seaver's? maybe we could squeeze in ken griffey too. let's pretend every great player who ever wore a sox uniform was a real white sox!
Retiring his number is stupid. If they want to honor him put a plaque or something where his home run ball landed in the black out game
This from a franchise that has won a WS since there's been a Clinton in the White House.
Devoted a whole fng pre-game ceremony ... ala Paulie-type hoopla ... made me wanna
From what I’m reading, they didn’t retire his number. They just honored him for getting into hof
Hmmm ... I was half-ass watching the BS, yesterday, waiting for the game to start and they sure made a big deal of his jersey number and all the hoopla. I guess I may have just assumed they were retiring his number with all Paulie-like pageantry going on.
It was still ridiculous watching that crap.
While they're at it... Tom Paciorek?
I was trying to think of a reason to defend this, but I can't.
I'm a fan of the most pathetic baseball franchise in existence, and I don't think they'd even try something like this.
Up next. Adam Dunn
Everyone does realize that this was just a ceremony to honor his career, right? We in absolutely zero way retired his number.
Agree 100%. I wasn't all that happy the Indians built a statue for him and retired his number. Yes he had a great career with the Tribe but he also left for more cash from the Phillies.
I saw some of the White Sox ceremony this past week. So if they are going to retire his number then we can expect the Phillies and Twins also?
I was never gaga over Thome, he was kind of a whore
