Merkin:

Walker believes Thome has another two or three years left of 30-home run, 100-RBI production, as long as his back allows him to get on the field. Thome believes the same, and it’s that thought process setting Thome apart from other talented players, in Walker’s estimation. “Physically, he’s still an absolute monster. Just a genetically gifted guy,” Walker said. “But the biggest thing that makes him special is his ability to believe in himself and his mental strength. He has strengths and weaknesses, and there are going to be times when he strikes out. But he doesn’t give into it or panic. He stays the course. He’s a very unique Hall of Fame player.”
