This is a good question. If these two are healthy I would say Thome because of the fact that he will now be in the best homerun hitter's ballpark in the bigs. Thome hit 40 or more in Cleveland and Philly several times. The Cell is much easier to put one out in. I say 47 for Thome if healthy and 38 for Paulie.

Granted he stays healthy, Thome will probably hit 40-45 slightly edging out Paulies usual 35-40 bombs. But I dont care if between them they hit 10 so long as were World Champions again.:)

This offense would score like 1,700 runs this season then.

Paulie no question. I expect Jim to miss about 15-20 games this season (either due to injuries or just rest).

Konerko's the man! He will hit 50 home runs this year. Perhaps I need HomeFish to create a chart to help me out here with my claim...

That's an awful lot of "you can put it on the board"'s from Hawk and awkward silence from DJ to put up with....

Oh, god, I'm fearing something even worse than "Uhhh ohhhhhhhhh! Bye bye!" coming from DJ's mouth this year...Ughh!

I said Paulie simply because I think he will play about 20-30 more games than JT will.

Does he say "Bye bye!" or "Ohhh myyy!"??? I know my hearing is bad but this will be pretty bad if I've been hearing the wrong call all along....

Remember, I am trying to piece together how this team can go 162-0. I KNOW it can be done!

Me and my uncle had that discussion a few years ago. It went along the lines of whether or not during the course of the next thousand years or so (taking for granted that there would be a world and MLB that long) if there could ever be a team that would go 162-0. I argued yes and he said no. I think he is right however. And no we weren't drinking. Just bored.

Those numbers are crazy! Podsednik, 1! He'll need Sammy vitamins for that.

You are delusional, my friend! They're going to lose at least 3! :cool:

I don't know, I might be crazy but I think a healthy Thome can hit 44-48 bombs this year as the Cell will be his first hitter friendly home park.

Yeah, I'd say my money is on your uncle in that one. :D:

Chalk up another vote for Thome here.

Piece of cake! Hire me as the home plate umpire for all 162 Sox games this year! I'd rule! :redneck

I'd even claim to be a lowly Twins fan on my resume so the "powers that be" wouldn't think I'd be partial to the Sox.

I think Konerko have avg'd at least 100 AB's more than Thome even if I drop 2005. Put another way, I think there's a very slim chance if any that Thome will remain healthier than Konerko in 2006. Konerko all the way.

Thome will probably produce a better AB/HR avg though.

That's a whole lotta tragic solo shots for Paulie though. They're cool and all, but "meh".

PK. No disrespect to Thome, I just think even if both were healthy Paulie would play more.

I'm gonna go with Paulie, though I wouldn't be surprised if Thome is right behind him throughout most of the season (if he stays healthy obviously).

I think Konerko will hit 43 homeruns and Thome will hit 41, but who would complain if they both hit 40 plus homers.

I say Konerko. This next part might belong in the "Thome 50 HR" thread, but here it is:

of the 20 guys in the 500 HR club, only 4 of them ever had a 40+ HR season after age 35. (Raffy, Bonds, Aaron, & Ruth). To me that shows that the mid to late 30's have not been kind to the premier sluggers....

I hope Thome hits 40, but the odds are against it......

The more I think about it I could see Ozzie resting a healthy but 35 yr old Thome at least as much as he rested a healthy Iguchi last year....

Although, you have to think that Thome will get more at-bats playing in the NL without the pitcher usually getting out. I say Konerko hits 42 and Thome 35. Surprise is Pods with 2...better watch out...test him for the juiice!!!
