I would sign him to a AAA contract and if he gets hot I would bring him to Baltimore and ride him until he gets cold again. Then he's gone. If he gives us a stretch of 20 or so hot games it could make the difference on getting to the wildcard game.

ofahn wrote:Thames is a AAAA OF. In other words - a dime a dozen. Young pitchers always seem to get more chances than 4A OFs.

ofahn wrote:Thames is 26 and has never had an OBA above .325 in the majors. Hoes is 23 and has been consistently improving. In fact, Hoes has an OPS in his first 26 ABs with Houston about equal to what Thames had in his last season in the majors. I don't see this as a hard choice.
