How can Thome not be in the home run contest???? He's on pace to hit close to 60 homers and will join the 500 club next season. He hit one in the Allegheny River just last week during an interleague game. He's close to being one of the all-time greatest home run hitters ever and is still at the height of his slugging ability. Simply unbelievable, even for the Caste System it's unbelievable.
