On a side note, I think it's pretty shameful that ESPN isn't dimming the lights, putting on some Barry White, and breaking out the cocoa butter for the lead-up to Thome's 600th homer like they did for Jeter's 3,000th hit. Jeter is the 28th player to get 3,000 hits, while only 7 players have ever hit 600 or more home runs. I guess that's the breaks when you don't play for one of the two teams that matter.

Who is Jim Thome? :)

That is a GREAT GIF! Thome's 600th will get coverage. Hes not playing everyday and hadn't hit a HR in forever until this bomb. When he gets two more and is at 598, they will be talking about the 40 year old chasing 600 everyday.

Exactly. 4 homers can take a while, especiallu given Thome's limited playing time.

I dunno, this Pelfrey balk gif that I found in the same thread is pretty awesome too:

This is just one of several reasons why the balk rule is so silly. He's clearly not trying to trick the runner, and he even stepped off the rubber before moving.
