Congrats on No. 600 to Jim Thome, one my favorite athletes I've ever covered.
Jim didn't need 600 to validate anything. He already had Hall of Fame enshrinement in the bag. Still, it sure is a nice exclamation point on a superb career for one of the true good guys ever to play professional sports.
Baseball -- and society, for that matter -- could use a lot more Jim Thomes.
