Adam Jones Reveals Jim Thome’s Awesome Nickname
I’ve heard Jim Thome called the Thomenator, Thomer or Mr. Incredible, but after belting career home run number 610, Adam Jones revealed what I believe to be his greatest nickname yet.
Huge congrats to Jim “Popeye” Thome on #610 and being alone in 7th place all time in homers. Glad I was the first to shake your hand.

Thome’s 418-foot blast was his first homer as an Oriole and with it he passed Sammy Sosa for seventh on the all-time home run list.
