For Jim Thome, nothing adds up to a ringJim Thome, known in the baseball circles as a man who swings ferociously and built like a mountain, recently moved past Rafael Palmeiro on the career list with his 585 career home run.

At 40, Thome may have lost the charm a bit but has not lost the aspiration to climb the ladder of 600 career home runs for no player has ever retired so close to 600 home runs.

Thome said that he seriously has to stop and think about the 600-run landmark because there’s no better way to go out than on top.

Jim Thome in close distance to emulate A-Rod's featJim Thome of the Minnesota Twins with 877 career homers till now is all set to join Alex Rodriguez in the 600 home run club if he continues playing.

Thome’s contributions to the game of baseball were possibly subdued by sluggers using anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs to make quick name, fame, and money and Baseball Hall of Fame voters thinking that his efforts may also be on the lines of these tainted players.

The Baseball Hall of Fame voters need to realize that the best thing they can do is to ignore the use of steroids since that relates to an era before testing.

Reggie Jackson uses his voice against Steroid UsersReggie Jackson, a two-time World Series most valuable player, has said that there is no room for baseball players who used steroids during their playing days to make an impression, in the hall of fame.

Jackson, who played Major League Baseball from 1967-1987, is one of the best baseball players ever and presently holds the 12th position on the all-time list for maximum home runs with 563 to his credit.

Some of the players who have outplayed him in the rankings had confessed to taking steroids in the past and the list includes big names, namely, Alex Rodriguez, Rafael Palmeiro, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds.

In an interview with the Bloomberg Television in New York, Jackson said that baseball greats like him who never used steroids to gain an unfair advantage feel offended to be ranked lower than those who cheat the game and fans by taking steroids.

  JOSE CANSECO TALKS ABOUT HIS BOOK, JUICED

JOSE CANSECO TALKS ABOUT HIS BOOK, JUICEDOpening day of this season’s Major League Baseball last Sunday and Jose Canseco takes the stage at the Bovard Auditorium at the USC. The former batter wrote the controversial book, Juiced, where he revealed that a majority of MLB players are taking steroids. He himself admitted to using hormones that plummeted him to infamy, but not without taking several names down with him. He included the names Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro, Ivan Rodriguez, and Juan Gonzalez.

To his audience in Bovard, he says he continues to use testosterone. Except in 1998 when depression made him get off steroids for a while. He played for Toronto where he was able to hit 46 home runs. He could’ve quit then but the lure of steroids was just too difficult to resist.

The audience were curious about Alex Rodriguez if he was going to suffer the same fate as Canseco did. But the latter said that A-Rod was not very honest about using steroids. Sure, he admitted to using them but there is still something that he is not telling. When his name was leaked to the press as one of those who tested positive, it made the people curious to know who were the rest. Manny Ramirez most likely occupies the top of the list for steroids use, according to Canseco. He disclaims that all these were just suspicions but he is pretty sure his theory is correct.

Palmeiro Honored With College Baseball Hall of Fame Award  Rafael Palmeiro, the famous four-time major league All-Star, was elected for the College Baseball Hall of Fame on 24th February. He was one of the 10 former players and coaches who were elected for the fourth induction class of the hall. In his 20 years of career, Palmeiro has scored 500 home runs and 3,000 hits. Palmeiro was also the first Triple Crown winner in Southeastern Conference history.

The 44-year-old Palmeiro had earlier missed the chances of making to the Baseball Hall of Fame due to his steroid controversy. His status and reputation was tainted by the positive test for it four years ago even after his denial of using steriods.

Joe Carter, Darren Dreifort, Kirk Dressendorfer, Barry Larkin, Keith Moreland and Todd Walker, along with Palmeiro’s earlier coach Ron Polk were the other big names to be elected for the fame. Along with these legends, Gordie Gillespie, coach of the University of St. Francis and Branch Rickey, a former player were also elected.

The college hall is run by Lubbock, which is a Texas-based college baseball foundation. The foundation focuses the achievement of players and coaches during their college careers. The inductees will be honored during a celebration in Lubbock on July 3.
