08:21 AM ET 01.04 | If the Twins would like to see Jim Thome in the 2011 lineup, it may cost them a whole lot more than in 2010. There are indications the Thome camp raised its eyebrows when Lance Berkman signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Cardinals. Thome made $1.7 million last season while batting .283 with 25 homers and 59 RBI. Clearly, he outperformed what he was paid, and their thinking could be that it's time make up for what he didn't earn last season while he swats career homer No. 600 in a Twins uniform.
