Wondering what’s going on with the White Sox and Jim Thome?
Check back here in about four hours and we should have an answer for you.
This is Ozzie’s call, and he’s currently flying back home to Miami. He’s expected to talk to the four beat writers covering the Sox early this evening in regards to Thome.
As I’ve been reporting the past week, Ozzie has a lot of respect for Thome, and vice versa. But he made a decision to go with a rotating group of designated hitters this season and all indications remain he’s going to stick with that plan.
As I also reported Friday, Thome has been in fairly serious talks with just two other teams _ the Minnesota Twins and Tampa Bay Rays _ according to a source.
Check back soon.
