Thome signing good for fantasy, bad for Delmon
Even at the age of 39, Thome is one of the better hitters the Twins have, ranking behind Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau, but on par with the rest of the team's top hitters in terms of OPS. I've been getting e-mails from those still stuck with Delmon Young in dynasty leagues, and they're all basically asking the same question: Will Young get 500 at-bats this season? I say no, he will not, not with Thome in town. The Twins don't have to find Thome at-bats, but why wouldn't they want to?
