After Monday’s game, AJ Pierzynski of the Chicago White Sox was talking with reporters about Jim Thome’s 550th HR with one of the smarter statements anyone has ever said.
He’s got almost 600 home runs so he’s done it a million times. He’s been up there so many times that I don’t think it phases him. The guy made a mistake and Jim hit it. The one thing about Jim if he gets the barrel on the ball it can go out to any part of the park. That’s why he’s got 550 homers.
Which is it, 600 or 1 million?
