Jim Thome is headed back to Cleveland where it all began. The future Hall of Fame inductee has accepted a deal that will send him from the Minnesota Twins to the playoff pursuing Cleveland Indians. Thome recently became the 8th player in Major League history to reach 600 career home runs. Thome previously played 12 seasons with the Indians from 1991-2002 before signing with Philadelphia prior to the 2003 season.
As cool as it is to see Jim Thome head back to where it began you have to wonder if his chances of winning his first Word Series title improved.
