11 Home Runs already. Though hes not the most popular Slugger in this town, has anyone realized his resemblance to the popular super-hero?

There's a physical resemblance to Mr. Incredible, but when Thome talks, he sounds like Owen Wilson:

Say what you will about his acting, but he's a beacon of hope for all guys with enormous noses. :Rocker:

I've been saying this since the beginning of the season. Thome IS Mr. Incredible. Because of this reason I watched The Incredibles last weekend and man Thome is a great Superhero!!!

im pretty sure that there is nothing that can be put on that pic to compensate for the way his face looks on that thing. looks like he is growing extra skin on his right side of his face. it is disturbing in more ways then i can think of.

Gotta say though, Unregistered's photoshop creation is by far the best I've seen. Very nice work!

The least he could've done was mention that he has seen it discussed.
In his article he makes it sound like he's the one who just noticed.

Not to rain on anyones parade, but to inject a little bit of reality here....Anyone who has watched Thome's career knows he's one of the biggest streak hitters ever to play the game. He can just as easily go 20 games without a HR as he can hit 5 in 4 days.

The man ain't gonna hit 80 HRs and drive in 210. (Hope he proves me wrong)

but....

He does strike fear into the hearts of opposing pitchers as much as anyone this side of Barry Bonds. Even when he's slumping (and he will) he gets on base a ton.

As a side note...consider Thome, Uribe, and Crede all getting hot at the same time. The Sox might average 15 runs a game during that run. :smile:
