His name is Eric Thames, and his bat is hot! In the last two days, we’ve seen the Brewers slugger hit 3 home runs, which gives him a commanding lead in the Home Run count at 11 so far for this season. Also to note, MLB has “randomly” drug-tested Thames 3 times since Spring Training, and two of those times in the past week. However, Thames is in good spirits about it, stating “I have a lot of blood and urine” in a recent interview.
From this Superfan’s viewpoint, if he’s willing, test him every game if it’ll appease the haters and doubters- I believe he’s clean, and as my friend Dynex Dan puts it, he’s a “professional hitter” all the way!
I don’t know how long your hitting streak will last Mr. Thames, but I do want to thank you for putting on a show each and every game that you step out on that field. Keep hitting the ball hard, and rally the team behind you. I say it every year, and this one is no different—-
This could be our year!
(yeah, I said it)
And now for a throwback pic- Handy Jay and Silvester creeping in the pic at the top of the big screen. Ohhhhhh you guuuyyyyssss….
