Thome Down To Last Year Of Contract

Jim Thome told Scott Merkin of MLB.com Wednesday that he plans on playing beyond 2009.  His contract with the White Sox, however, runs out at the conclusion of this season.

Thome claims to be in great shape and knocked 34 balls out of the park last year.  His power would be welcome in most lineups.

"If this is my last year [in Chicago], I'm truly going to enjoy every minute of it -- as I am going to enjoy this last phase of my career... Playing for [manager] Ozzie [Guillen] and with guys from Konerko to Dye to A.J., they are all proven winners. I've been given the chance to play in a great, winning organization."
