Is he a good buy low candidate? He started even worse than this last year, and ended up with great numbers, while on the A's. Now he's on Toronto with guys like Rios and Wells in front and Glaus behind, so when he gets it going RBIs and Runs should be coming.

I don't know. Thomas seems to be pretty sensitive to his environment, and right now Toronto is in a major tailspin both performance and atmosphere-wise.

He'll rebound, but I don't know if I'd trade for him. Prob would consider picking him up as an FA if I had the room though.

Thomas isn't going to get a pile of runs, the Jays are pinchrunning for him quite a bit it seems, so that will take away some late inning runs

He gets credit for the run when they pinch run for him.

No...I'm fairly sure you don't.

Frank had a pinch runner yesterday before Glaus's HR, and he didn't get a run.

Yeah, that caught me by surprise too. I believe the pinch runner gets the run credited to him....... :-?

Aren't the most important attributes for Thomas HR and RBI anyway? To score a lot of runs, you need to be fast and run from 2nd to home on a single, we all know this old man can't run a lick.
