Ankle just fine, thank you

Jim Thome left yesterday's game after his homer in the 6th, thanks to a sore ankle. According to Thome, and an article by the Inquirer's Todd Zolecki, the ankle pain is nothing to worry about.

"Really, it'll be fine....Every now and then it gets achy. It's hard to explain."

No explanation needed if he stays in the lineup, which I expect he will. But it is something to keep an eye on as the playoff race heats up.
