Did the phillies trade him to baltimore to keep him close to philly out of respect? I am not sure if he lives here but he loves it here and I am wondering if they sent him there to keep him close?

Baltimore needs a DH. They tried Minn, CWS and Cle but all didn't need a DH

For a 40+ year old with back problems, you're luck you one guy with a plus - let alone two - instead of an autograph picture of Jim Palmer.

Already the 2nd trade this season, 3rd in Carlos Lee could come soon. Probably will be lots of trades this summer.

I say good for Thome and the O's. The O's could really use his bat and experience and I hope Thome does well there.

I think there will be less than normal with so many more teams in "contention". Teams will sell their fans on we are "trying" to make the playoffs by grasping a last ditch wild card spot, but will hurt their long term outlook to do so.

I can't believe that Amaro was able to get some talent this easily for him.

Not a bad return for someone they barely use and won't have next year anyway.

Detroit never wanted Thome.... not this season ... not the past few seasons.
It's all about 'fit' and our roster doesn't support any DH-onlys these days. We already have a few 1Bs and if you watched Thome at 1B in the past couple seasons, he's terrible there. Makes Fielder look like a Gold Glover....lol

Paplebon probably demanded a Thome trade so he could welch on their bet. ;)
Really though, good move for both teams. Glad Thome can get some more AB's now with O's.
