PHILADELPHIA -- For $85 million, Jim Thome ought to do more than just show up every day in South Philadelphia with a first baseman's mitt.
He ought to jog up the Art Museum steps like Rocky Balboa. He ought to power-wash William Penn's statue. He ought to grill a few cheese steaks at Pat's and Geno's. Heck, he ought to play quarterback for the Eagles for a series or two. (Everyone else has.)
