Regarding the Phillies: do you want the good news or the bad news?
The good news: Jim Thome hit his 400th career home run, in front of the home crowd. Gotta love seeing the reaction of Mrs. Thome, jumping for joy (while holding their one-year-old daughter). :o)
The bad news: at about 8 PM, going into the bottom of the third inning, the skies opened up. The game has been in a rain delay for the past two hours.
If the game gets washed out, Jim Thome's landmark home run will be washed out with it.
They just reported on Comcast that the tarp is about to be removed from the field. I guess we'll know by tomorrow if Jim Thome's reached 400 career home runs, or if he's been bumped back down to 399.
