No announcement on Thome, but Oz will talk to us later on. Not normal procedure, so it might be a no on Big Jim.
This is Ozzie’s call, and he’s currently flying back home to Miami. He’s expected to talk to the four beat writers covering the Sox early this evening in regards to Thome.
As I’ve been reporting the past week, Ozzie has a lot of respect for Thome, and vice versa. But he made a decision to go with a rotating group of designated hitters this season and all indications remain he’s going to stick with that plan.
