Eric Thames Needs To Bring Fake Mound Charge to MLB
Every now and again, I wish I had people who took care of this blog when I make actual money. Because if I had those people, we would have already blogged this video that went hyper viral of Eric Thames, now Milwaukee Brewers first baseman, fake charging the mound in South Korea giving the pitcher a goddamn heart attack. It’s gold from a variety of reasons, and I really need to see what would happen if Thames did this in Major League Baseball.
Eric Thames seems fun. Gets plunked in the KBO All Star Game and fakes like he's gonna charge the mound. pic.twitter.com/VaYUvMVsXX

There’s a longer version, but that’s all you need. Thames is a fun dude. I doubt he will keep this pace, but if he’s a 30-35 home run guy for Milwaukee, there’s going to be a lot of love for him over the summer. Thames ranks as a top guy you do not want to see charge the mound. Imagine a man that size bullrushing after you? It would not be a good look. Guarantee you that Korean pitcher pooped a little bit seeing Thames coming to the mound.
