MLB Slaps Thome

Generally regarded as one of the nicest guys in baseball, the White Sox' Jim Thome got a little testy when he was called out on strikes by home plate umpire James Hoye during last Friday's game against the Detroit Tigers. So miffed was Thome that he had to be separated from the ump by Ozzie Guillen of all people.

Thome earned a one-game suspension and fine for his outburst and will sit out tonight's (Tuesday's) contest against the Oakland A's. Thome is batting .156, which might have something to do with the uncharacteristic reaction.

Ken -

I enjoy the early season inflammation from Thome. Other than providing my baseball fix, the White Sox also provide my daily dose of Reality TV. At least since Ozzie returned to the team.
