He's got some nasty stuff. They might have something in barnes.

Why on Earth did the Angels want to swap out Bandy for Maldonado?

Wow, Thames is putting up video game numbers in the MLB just like what he did in the Korean league. Stearns must be a genius.

He added a cutter to go with his mid-90's fastball and slider. When his command is on, it's pretty filthy.

Any win over the Cubs is a sweet win indeed.

According to this, Thames got tested after the game. How "appropriate" #Brewers

Where did this guy come from? He was like a juiced up Eric Gagne out there.

Something special is happening — and it’s not happening because of a couple of lucky bounces. It’s happening because my guys are for real.

Pretty fun team to watch so far and that is without Villar doing ****. He might regret not inking an extension because looks like a guy that is pressing way too hard.

I hate to say it but I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. All I can do is hope if he was using in Korea that he's smart enough to stop it here.

I'd doubt it cause he's always been jacked.

Lackey apparently inferred he might be using, haha. We'll see.

It would be nice to have some guys on base for Thames occasionally since nobody can get him out right now.

Literally anybody but Villar would be better there. I'd try Santana there for a little bit until Villar figures it out. The only thing positive Villar has done is hit a couple homers.

They let an easy insurance run get away last inning, should be 6-2 right now. We'll see if that comes back to bite them.
