ABSTRACT
The article reports that the baseball team Philadelphia Phillies' general manager Pat Gillick got a surprisingly good return on first baseman Jim Thome, acquiring center fielder Aaron Rowand and two lefthanded pitching prospects from the baseball team White Sox. The Phillies will pay almost half of Thome's contract, but few expected Gillick to fare so well, so soon.
