When I read that Jim Thome has signed on with the White Sox organization, I was happy for him but disappointed that it was not with the Cubs, the team that he followed as a kid growing up. Thome has no history with the Cubs organization, but I wrote about him anyway in this piece that appeared online today. It comes off as an exercise in what might have been, but was also therapeutic for me on a level that I can’t really explain.

Thome will end up managing somewhere in baseball over the coming few years, and joining the White Sox’ front office was a step in that direction. We’ll see where it goes from there.
