Thome waives no-trade, returns to Indians


CLEVELAND -- Jim Thome once said that his Indians jersey would have to be ripped from his broad shoulders in order for him to suit up for another club.

After nine years spent with four different teams, Thome's torn threads have been put in the past and Cleveland appears ready to offer him a fresh uniform. On Thursday, the Indians and Twins completed a trade that serves as a kind of homecoming for the veteran slugger.

The Indians acquired Thome -- Cleveland's all-time home run king -- in exchange for a player to be named.

Definitely my second favorite Indian ever (Kenny is first and Omar is a close third). So glad he is back and I never held a grudge against him. Quite possibly the best man to ever play the game.

Love Thome, but he ain't what he use to be. Now are 3 and 4 hitters Carlos and Jim have a .240 batting average. Hard to score runs when your cleanup hitters ain't hitting
