The Cleveland Guardians All-Century Team
12 of 12
Jim Thome (2000-2002)
The only reason Jim Thome does not have a position on this team is that he only spent three years in Cleveland during the century. However, he merits some discussion here because his three seasons were arguably the best three individual seasons any player had. He AVERAGED 46 home runs and 116 RBI in those three seasons to go along with a 1.026 OPS and 164 OPS+ (that OPS+ would be much higher had the offensive environment he played in not been riddled with steroids). Regardless, Thome is a legend in Cleveland, but is not a member of this roster because his main years with the team came in the 1990s.
