Jim Thome Headed BACK to Cleveland
That's right, if you believe the folks on Twitter (and, really, why wouldn't you?), Jim Thome is leaving the Minnesota Twins and heading BACK to the Cleveland Indians.
There's no word yet as to who is heading north.
In 12 years with the Tribe (from 1991 through 2002), Thome hit a team-record 334. In his final year, the future Hall of Famer hit a single-season team record 52 homers.
On August 15, the 40-year-old slugger became the eighth man in history to hit 600 homers.
