If I remember correctly, Thome pretty much begged to come back and was willing to sign with us for about $1 million for 1 year. Money was NOT an issue.
It's bad enough that the Sox turned him down and missed out on his productive 2010 season, but we also in the process handed his bat over to the Twins and he helped them beat us to the division title.
