T is for Thome

White Sox Homerun hitters from A.J. to Zeke

T is for Thome

Jim Thome

Let me we be really clear Jim Thome did not ruin the White Sox.  Sure they won the World Series right before he got there and haven't sniffed it since.  But that is not Thome's fault form 2006 to 2009 Thome hit 134 of his 612 major league homers for the Sox.  The 7th most of all time the 134 is good enough for 13th on the Sox all time list.  In his 22 yr career Jim averaged 39 homers for every 162 games played.  Thome hit 42 for sox in 2006 and followed up with 35 in 2007.  Thome's time with the Sox may not have warranted the ring he so dearly wanted, but make no mistake, Thome is no Sox killer.
