Phillies Agree To Trade Jim Thome To Baltimore Orioles

I know that this is not exactly Yankees related but it is relevant to the AL East so I decided that I would post it anyway. This afternoon the Philadelphia Phillies agreed to trade 1B Jim Thome to the Baltimore Orioles for  A ball pitching prospect Kyle Simon and 19 year old catching prospect Gabriel Lino (basically nothing....).

The Orioles were in need of a DH type hitter and someone to help from the left side and they got both with this Thome deal. Is he going to be the one to lead the Orioles to the promised land? Probably not... Is he going to help? Immensely in my opinion.
