Kevin ‘Wino’ Thomas at the age of 35 continues to demonstrate the ability to read the pitches and determine whether to swing or take the free pass. This year K.T. has worked the walk 48 times and fanned but 28. His lifetime BB/K ratio: 502 to 330. With his .351 batting average he is a force to reckon with batting out of the #2 hole. With speedster Ben Wotherspoon batting lead-off you might say the hit & run is a pretty nice option for GM David Jones.
