Quote of the Day
Larry Bowa: And the thing is, he did it the right way--without steroids.
Mitch Williams: He did it with hay. Oats and hay.
--MLB Network announcers, and former Major Leaguers, reacting to the news of Jim Thome's 600th career homerun.
My reaction? Thome is the 8th player in baseball history to do this. Derek Jeter was the 28th player in baseball history to reach 3,000 hits. Which got more press?
