Jim Thome has been Traded, but Twins will Still Give Away his Wind-Up Walker
Jim Thome was claimed off waivers by the Indians and traded by the Twins for a player to be named later Thursday. Unfortunately, the Twins had already planned to give away 10,000 Jim Thome wind-up walker toys for Friday’s game but those were not included in the deal.
Yes, according to Rand Ball via Hardball Talk, the Twins still plan to carry out the Thome giveaway even though he’s no longer part of the team. Why deprive the great people of Minnesota of a perfectly good toy just because of some stupid little trade?
