Thames not getting his due...

Even at 6th he should get more RBIs and Rs. Shelton is starting to pick it up again and hopefully will knock him in. He was batting 7th or 8th for a while, which I think is why those stats are lower...its not like he hasn't hit a fair share of homers with people on base or lacks the ability to hit when it counts (I learned this the hard way when hit a 9th inning HR to tie it against my cards).

Thames has been one of the batters most moved around in the lineup this year. A wire gem indeed.

Batting 2nd: 7 games
3rd: 4 games
4th: 3 games
5th: 11 games
6th: 21 games
7th: 8 games
8th: 10 games
9th: 1 game

He was the guy I threw in along with Manny to get Tex and M. Young. Figured he'd drop off but so far no dice....

I wouldn't be to quick on the trigger. This week hasn't been great for him, and he could possibly be traded to a team that could use his power.

Besides the trade...he has a thing with hitting homeruns on Sunday...and not just last Sunday (2 HR, 5 RBI), there have been a couple weeks I've been like, ok, nothing this week, and then he'll have a big sunday with a HR...I'm starting him tomorrow.

Disclaimer: there obviously is no statistical relevance to this, but hey, when some random thing like that is working, go with it...

Yep, that's why I said don't be quick on the trigger! There is no way that Detroit will leave someone like Thames on the bench!

Yea, I mean he is their team leader in HR (and not like they are a weak hitting team). He also has shown the ability to hit HR in clutch situations...the main problem with him is his defense.
