Jim Thome is about to enter the 500 HR club, he is sitting at 499. Thome has had a very good career, and I would have loved to have had him on my team, but IMO, he is not a Hall of Fame ballplayer.
Further proof on the cheapening of the home run.

Agree, but not necessarily on Thome. 50 home runs is no longer a guarantee pass to the HOF (see Mark McGwire).
