Cubs Talked About Getting Thome?

According to this story from today's Tribune, which was about the Sox setting a deadline for Konerko to make his intentions known:

 "Jim [Thome] had a complete no-trade," Gillick said. "In the end we were only dealing with two clubs. Really three, but the Cubs had a first baseman (Derrek Lee), so in reality it was only two (the Sox and Cleveland)."

More below the flip . . .

I was flabbergasted to read this.  What would Hendry have been thinking in talking to the Phillies about Thome?  He would obviously have had to be a bench player here, and who would we have given in return?

Just wondering if you all are as perplexed as I am.
