The biggest news coming out of baseball this weekend was the announcement of the All Star rosters for the upcoming mid-summer classic next week. And while I’d love to sit here and debate the selections and the snubs with you, I’ve realized, over time, that it’s pointless. For every guy I think doesn’t belong, five people will tell me that he does and vice versa. Sometimes the whole process can be so subjective that rarely will you ever have even just two people agree upon a set of rosters completely.
So goes the life of a journeyman slugger in the twilight of his career. Just one week after “saving” Jonathan Papelbon and the Phillies with his record-setting 13th career walk-off home run, Jim Thome was traded to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a pair of minor league players. Thome, now on his sixth team in the last three years is coming back to the AL and working as a full-time DH which really, is the best thing for him, the Orioles, and for fantasy owners.
