are you sure ???

0.207 RISP (1 hr)
0.139 RISP w/2outs (0 hr)




:-?


Isn't quoting runners in scoring position numbers irrelevant when talking about homeruns? A two run homer with a guy on first is no less clutch than with a guy on second.

Poor Thames is mired on an 0 for 17 slump. I was expecting a correction, but not this drastic :-t

I havent looked at his numbers recently, but it was 17 hrs and like 34 RBis when I last saw them. Thats pretty bad. a 2 RBI/HR ratio?

Yea...but Shelton plays 1B, and I don't think its the hitting, it might actually be his defense.

His run may have finally ended...I'm thinking bout dumping him for Rivera (who just hit another) or some pitching....Thoughts?

Young isn't signed for next year, but neither is Thames. What are the thoughts on Thames as a dynasty league OF (16-team)?
