Thames back in a platoon?

Postby rcarena » Wed Jul 23, 2008 5:16 pm

He's having a career season, but he just missed 2 straight games. Is he becoming a spot player again?

From what I've heard, Thames will be moved before the deadline, most likely to the Mets. If that's the case, you can guarantee he'll be starting everyday...

What a catch that'd be for the Mets...

would make sense to move thames b/c they have joyce whos also hitting the ball very well and theres no pt platooning thames and joyce. If u guys look at his numbers if he ever played a full seseason he would be a lock for 35 homers and about a .265 or so avg.

That's true...the Tigers are stacked in the OF, they could def afford to move Thames.

i havent heard the trade rumors yet, but i did hear that Leyland has the following plan to for Thames, Sheffield and Joyce
Thames and Sheff will both play 3 of every 4 games and Joyce will play 2 of every 4, but i imagine that is subject to change on a whim

It apparently has changed on a whim....Thames is out for the third straight game.

They really must be showcasing Joyce for a trade. It's the only reason I can think of to sit him for three straight games. Righties or no righties.
