The Dodgers' Playoff Roster: Joe Torre Moves In Mysterious Ways
Thome was acquired on Aug. 31 from the Chicago White Sox, where he appeared in 107 games (exclusively as a DH/pinch hitter), and hit 23 HRs with 74 RBIs. OK, so it looked like the 39-year-old slugger, who has 564 career HRs, had a little bit left in the tank. But he also had 116 Ks in 345 ABs. He struck out in a third of his at-bats, which is pretty close to his career numbers! After joining the Dodgers he appeared in 17 games, had 17 ABs with four hits (all singles), 3 RBIs and 7 Ks. Against the Cards he was 0-for-2 with a strikeout. (Hey, he struck out half the time!)
