Waiver News

The Indians and Jim Thome will not joining forces this season as the Chicago White Sox have made a claim on both Thome and Jason Kubel. It is still unknown whether the Twins will actually release Thome to the Sox, or decide to keep him, but the Jim Thome will not be an Indian in 2011. There ends another Indians dream.

*Edit: There are now conflicting reports that the Indians have also claimed Thome and that the White Sox may have just claimed Kubel. Since waiver news is supposed to be secret, there will be no official reports until an actual trade is made. There is also a rumor that Thome wants to return to Philadelphia and will use his no trade clause to avoid any other team.
