Eric Thames Sends Brewers’ Fans Home Happy
Eric Thames is having a great 2019 season. He has been underrated in terms of his season. He played good enough this year for Milwaukee to ship off Jesus Aguilar to the Tampa Bay Rays at the trade deadline. Brewers fans haven’t exactly given him the credit he deserved him for this season. He has an OPS+ of 115 this year and matched his home run total with 16 last night with his walk-off homer. One thing about Thames this season has been his ability to be clutch this year which hasn’t been the case for him since joining the Brewers.

A couple of things here -> First, it’s awesome that the Brewers give us the Bob Uecker call. I love that shit. Uecker can still dial it up for a walk-off, and he definitely did that for Thames’ walk-off. Second, how about the fucking catch by the person in the stands?! I am usually anti-glove to baseball games if you’re above the age of 13 or Jim Harbaugh. Good to see the Milwaukee Brewers get it done last night. They’re now at a four-game winning streak and will hopefully build on this for another win.
