Some guys have a very hard time making the adjustment. All your adult life you are worshiped and put on a pedestal then just like that it's over. As Henry Higgins from Goodfellows said, now I'm just another schnook.
That being said, Thome is a class act he will be fine no matter what he decides to do either as a coach or manager or out of the game.
I went golfing one day with a former major leaguer who had not played for 20 years and he wanted to be comped because he once was a major leaguer.
Guy at the desk said "nice to meet you, that will be 90 dollars."

Related story; when I was a desk jockey down in Naples, I comped a former White Sox pitcher and some members who were in the pro shop at the time complained to the head pro about it.
