    It’s entirely possible that Jim Thome made his final Phillies start on Sunday. He made it a memorable one.

    With a second-inning blast to right field as a designated hitter, Thome became the fourth player in baseball history with at least 100 home runs for three teams.

    Thome homered in the second inning of a 6-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre.

    The others who have hit at least 100 homers for three teams are Alex Rodriguez (Seattle, Texas, New York), Reggie Jackson (California, New York, Oakland), and Darrell Evans (Atlanta, San Francisco, Detroit).

    And, for the record, at this moment, only Reggie is in the Hall of Fame…

      Had Sheffield not gotten hurt in 2006, he probably would’ve made the list also. Sheffield ended up with 76 HR, just 24 shy.

      I wonder who will be the next guy to join the list…
