The story is true. Jim Thome is indeed a Minnesota Twin. They signed him for 1 year, $1.6 million.
In response to this unsettling bit of news, my favorite cartoonist, Carl Skanberg came up with this cartoon (the shirtless guy is a Chicago Blackhawks hockey player named Jonathan Toews who got in trouble for a DUI).

If it's any consolation, we in White Sox Nation can rest a little easier with the knowledge that Thome hasn't got much left in the tank.
GO WHITE SOX!!!
