RBIs: 15th (1,704)

Runs: 37th (1,028 -- depending on Bagwell/Biggio)

Hits: 58th (1,028) (59th depending on Biggio)

Sacrifice Flies: 5th (121)

And here's a quirky postscript: Thomas is just the second player inducted into the Hall of Fame without a sacrifice bunt in his career -- former Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew is the other. Mike Piazza could be the third if he makes it to Cooperstown.
