La Velle E. Neal III has covered baseball for the Star Tribune since 1998 (the post-Knoblauch era). Born and raised in Chicago, he grew up following the White Sox and hating the Cubs. He attended both the University of Illinois and Illinois-Chicago and began his baseball writing career at the Kansas City Star. He can be heard occasionally on KFAN radio, lending his great baseball mind to Paul Allen and other hosts. Mark Rosen borrows him occasionally for WCCO-TV.

 So the Twins might have a good shot at landing the burly slugger. Joe and I will stay on top of this so stay tuned. Remember that Thome has to agree to a reserve role to make this happen. There have been reports that Tampa Bay is interested and might be able to offer him more at-bats.
