Speaking of new life
I’m sure that somewhere buried deep in the dotCommonweal bylaws is a rule barring what I’m about to do, but I’m going to do it anyway. Which is to post on baseball. (Click the play button in the center of the image to make the magic happen.)
What you’re witnessing is a selection of home runs courtesy of White Sox designated hitter Jim Thome. I’ll give you a moment to watch them again. Go ahead, take it all in. Thing of beauty, that swing.
Thome was aquired in a painful trade that sent beloved center fielder Aaron Rowand to the Phillies, where Thome spent most of last season on the disabled list. Evidently, he’s feeling fine.
