Congrats Jim Thome on 600!!!

One of the good guys of the game, a sure-fire first ballot Hall of Famer, and part of in my opinion the best lineup I have ever seen- mid 90's Indians. Lofton and Vizquel who got on base, stole a billion bases, and gave them a tremendous defense up the middle, followed by Belle, Thome, and Manny who terrorized pitchers with a lethal combination of hitting for average and power, and Sandy Alomar with his timely hits and GG catching.

While that team's pitching was mediocre, the fact that they never won a ring is just further proof as if the Browns and LeBron leaving aren't enough proof that Cleveland is forever cursed. But I will still never forget that offense scoring double-digits/game, Jacobs Field selling out every game to the tune of the drums beating in left field.
