Be sure to read John's tremendous article on Jim Thomeand his long-awaited arrival in Minnesota, in a Twins uniform. He spent just over a year and a half wearing the Twins pinstripes, and yet, he provided Twins fans with many memorable moments.

Be sure to vote in the attached poll, but there are just six things I came up with off the top of my head. I'm sure you can come up with more.

Always - Thome's Class

Like Killebrew before him, I can't help but wonder if people will forget how incredible of a baseball player Thome was because he is even a better man, always classy.
