As expected, Marcus Thames was officially named Double-A Trenton’s hitting coach this afternoon, and that gives me a reason to post some Marcus Thames highlights. Who doesn’t like Marcus Thames highlights? He was a beast in 2010 and is just an awesome and easy to like root for guy in general. I don’t know anyone who didn’t like Marcus Thames. No one ever bothered to make a Thames highlight compilation for YouTube, so I’m stuck posted several videos. They’re all awesome though.
Here is your first official nightly open thread of 2014. Only another six weeks of these before we start getting into nightly Spring Training recaps. Can’t wait. The Islanders, Knicks, and Nets are all playing tonight, so talk about those games or anything else right here. Have at it.
Note: Sometime around noon I was messing around with some stuff and, long story short, I deleted the responses to this morning’s Masahiro Tanaka’s poll. If you voted before then, please re-enter your vote. Thanks.
