I bet he doesn’t have a twitter account, Facebook page or weekly blog and you’ll never see him in a reality show. He doesn’t have it in him to say look at me like so many of today’s sports stars slash entertainers. What Jim Thome does have is 600 career home runs.

Three straight record-breaking seasons with more than 200 strikeouts is enough for Mark Reynolds.
