While I was driving to school today, I was listening to the Tony Rizzo show. I heard them Talking about the possiblity of bringing back Thome. However, I didn't hear if this was based off an actual rumor or, simply their own opinions. I for one would love to see Thome back in Cleveland but, don't know if it is worth bringing in a 40 year old DH who would be yet another lefty in an already lefty heavy lineup. I was just curious if anyone else has heard this rumor and what your opinion is of it?
During a question-and-answer, he said the Indians have their eye on two former players to come back and coach -- once they're out of uniform. The two: Omar Vizquel and Jim Thome.
