ERIC THAMES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Former Blue Jay Eric Thames makes his own opportunities

Eric Thames had a stellar 2014 campaign. In 114 games, he batted .341, hit 34 home runs, drove in 113, and posted a 1.09 OBP, 159 points better than Jose Bautista.

Eric Thames’ cleats cause sparks as he collides with outfield garage (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Who would have ever imagined baseball cleats could be a fire hazard? All I can say is Eric Thames is lucky there was no gasoline or dry grass under his feet during the third inning Wednesday night, otherwise he may have had to stop, drop and roll. Thames went into the right field corner to chase a foul ball during a game against the the Orioles...
