Line of the Day: Jim Thome: 600th Home Run Edition

Jim Thome became the eighth member of the exclusive 600-Home Run Club in explosive fashion, homering twice and driving in five runs to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 9-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers. It was the 48th multi-homer game of his career. (video recap)

Line: 4 AB | 2 R | 3 H | 5 RBI; 2 HR

My fantasy perspective: Thome hasn't been fantasy relevant in 2011 and really only has value while he's on a hot streak as a short term fix. But none of the matters when it comes to a career milestone such as hitting 600 career home runs. Congratulations to one of the truly good guys in the game of baseball.

Question: Will Thome be a "first ballot" Hall of Famer?
