A source close to the Jim Thome camp told the Sun-Times on Friday that the Sox are now rethinking the idea of life without the veteran slugger, despite the wishes of manager Ozzie Guillen to try the designated-hitter by committee.

“It’s 50-50 now, which couldn’t be said [Thursday],” the source said, referring to the chances of Thome re-signing. “Jim is just waiting to hear.” …

UPDATE: Gonzales:

Williams told fans Saturday morning at SoxFest that he’d consider a return by Thome only if manager Ozzie Guillen was comfortable with bringing him back, but warning that Thome would have to be comfortable with a role that could result in less playing time than the full-time designated hitter role he held with the Sox for the past four years.


Out of respect to Jim Thome _ and he certainly deserves it _ manager Ozzie Guillen said he’s considering bringing the 39-year-old designated back for another season at SoxFest Saturday. Guillen heads back home to Miami tomorrow, and he said a decision will be made before he leaves.
