Matt Reynolds is a bad baseball player with no average (or better) major league skills.

Sluggin' David Thompson homered in the Binghamton 2nd.

The game is now tied at 1.


Been showing good power lately.

I've been hard on Thompson but credit where credit is due, he's been raging hot

DSL Mets2 won game 2, 13-3, to clinch the San Pedro division.

Luis Santana went 2 for 4 with a triple, walk, 3 runs and 3 RBIs.
Yoel Romero went 2 for 4 with a 3-run homer and 4 RBIs.

Nice to see Thompson finish strong. Want to see that power carry over to Vegas next year.

I wonder how Thompson has looked at 3rd base? The scouting report was that he might have to move to 1st base, but I think his error total, which aren't an end all be all, is actually pretty low.

Even if he's an average glove with average OBP skills, if he can bop 20+ homers there might be something there.

to put it into perspective, there are people okay with Wilmer Flores playing 3B if he could hit 20 HRs. Thompson would have to be pretty brutal defensively to be worse than Flores at the position.

One of those minornleague defensive metric systems found Thompson to be surprisingly solid at 3B despite hit rep

Astro has posted many a GIF of Thompson making nice plays this season. I think he can handle the position just fine.
