Man, what’s the call on Marcus Thames? I can’t figure it out.
This is as close as I can get.
Closest comp for Thames is ..... Ken Phelps?
Good call there, Alex.
I like Thames, and not just because of the recent home runs. He seems to be a genuinely likeable guy, at least from what you can see of him interacting with players and post game interviews (which - we gotta admit - are always after something good happens so of course he's going to be in a good mood).
He just seems to be a guy who's recognized his place on the team and is trying his best to contribute.
Easy guy to root for.
