WELP! In an exciting and, most importantly, fun piece of news; the Philadelphia Philles agreed to terms with Jim Thome to a one year deal (pending a physical) with a reported price tag of $1.25 million dollars.

Thome has no business wearing a glove and this might end up being a Matt Stairs-esque pinch hitter turn. Ole Jim Jam might end up logging some time at first base should Ryan Howard’s Achilles injury keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time.

But who cares! Jim freaking Thome is irresistible! Below the jump is an joy-soaked storify log of baseball people basically freaking out over Jim Thome. Enjoyable minds at their absolute finest.
