Monday was Jim Thome Day. Now it’s turning into Jim Thome week and rightly so.

The Twins announced plans to honor Thome’s #600 and now #601 during this week’s home stand against the Yankees. Even though the Thome and ARod couldn’t be more different, thinking about two #600 Club members playing against each other at Target Field is neat.

Speaking of neat, I’ve gained a new respect for Tiger fans after a standing ovation for Mr. Thome during Tuesday night’s game in the 9th inning. But then again, I wonder if they would have been so eager to stand had the score been 1-1 rather than 1-7.

I was listening to the radio man during yesterday’s game. I didn’t hear any accounts of ovations after Thome’s #601 or his late inning RBI. I could be wrong though.

It’s fine. Twins fans will be lined up to give Mr. Thome all the ovations he deserves tonight.

I didn’t think I could say it in 2011 but we’re lucky to be Twins fans this season!

Heck, why don’t we dub the whole season the “Jim Thome Season”?
