From "The Detroit Tigers Weblog"

Is it Thames Time?
July 4th, 2008 at 12:32 am

Things are going pretty well for Marcus Thames. Throughout his career hes been a role player. A guy who has been called on to fill in and hit homers. Now, on the wrong side of 30, finally in his first year of salary arbitration, hes being acknowledged as an everyday player. Hes given back by going on quite the home run tear that has gotten him some national attention.

Via Jason Becks blog Thames is a finalist for the June Pepsi Clutch Award thanks in large part to his homer barrage. Vote often for Marcus. Eight of his 10 homers in June either tied the score or gave the Tigers the lead.

Along those same lines, could Thames be a candidate to represent the Tigers in the All Star Game? With Magglio Ordonez on the shelf, Placido Polanco is probably the next best option. But Dustin Pedroia and Jacoby Ellsbury Ian Kinsler probably have second base covered. Thames is still a long shot, and it probably doesnt speak well of a team with a $130 million payroll.

But what a great story for a great guy if it were to happen.
Plus Thames could definitely bring something to the Home Run Derby.


It takes pitching, hitting and defense. Any two can win. All three make you unbeatable.

How come the Tigers only get one All Star Rep?


That Sucks!


We could be in First Place by the All Star Break!
