It was a joke

 

Though i wouldnt necessarily say irrelevant. Even if it's a legit present, it's still cheeky to post it. He knows what it means to do that, and what kind of reaction it'll get.

Him and his wife share the account. So who knows who even posted it.

Everyone on this board is going to need therapy after all this soap opera is done. I feel like we are watching an extremely long show of Law and order svu. So many plot twists.

can't lose if you don't play.

thome chose the phillies over his beloved cubs because there was immense pressure to set the market for FAs

machado could give us a tiny discount if he wants to be with his pals, but after all this scrutiny of the players' standing in MLB, that discount would be quite minimal.

Thome was a Cubs fan growing up?

Pretty sure, born and raised in central Illinois...his family I went to school with leaned towards the Cubs.

Yes. Growing up in Peoria. They had the Peoria Cubs, a minor league affiliate. I believe he talked about it at the time.

She also posted it on her story as well. Exact same video. So decent chance she took the video and posted it on both.

I knew he was from Peoria but I didn't know about his Cubs fandom. Interesting.

In that area, it's either Cubs or Cardinals.

I'd say it's 48/48/2/1/1 cubs/cards/yanks/sox/everyone else respectively in Peoria area. 

 

I went to the same high school as Thome.  I met him once at a gas station couple blocks from my house, during the offseason, around the first year he was with the Phillies.  Awesome guy.

Peoria Chiefs is the team, and it's alternated 3 or 4 times since early 90s between the Cubs(Mark Grace was one I believe) and Cards(Albert Pujols) as their Single A team.

If a player is out for a year due to Tommy John, like Kopech, do we lose a year of his contract as well? What about if a player is suspended? Just for example, we sign a guy to a 5 year deal and he is injured the whole year or suspended, does that still count as a year of service even tho they didn't play? Probably a stupid question, I know.

Yes players accrue service time on the MLB DLm
