What Eric Thames is doing right now kind of reminds us of this.
You see, we were one of the only ones that bought into Thames in fantasy drafts this offseason. People told us he would suck. People told us his STEAMER projections were a bunch of horse shit. We agree with that, actually.
But it meant something when the Brewers jumped out and signed him to that deal. And he gets to play in that bandbox in Milwaukee. Plus a bandbox like Cincinnati a dozen or whatever times.
So now that the monster within Eric Thames has been released – he’s homered five times in four games – you can see he’s probably going to do a ton of damage.
If you weren’t on Eric Thames as a sleeper, sorry to be you. This roided up monster is only getting started.
