Righty swing, quick stroke with a visible uppercut plane (which seems to be what Law doesn't like) - Dave Kingman? Maybe without the "epic" power, but with considerably fewer strikeouts?

I'm not a big college bat guy, but Thompson looks fun.

I saw two of Thompson's four ABs today. Big guy, open stance, slight bat waggle. Not in a hurry to swing the bat. Also, not up there to get cheated. In the field, I saw only one chance for him at 3B. He made an awkward half-dive to his left and had a ball kick off his glove. Scored a hit. Ugly play.

In his 2nd AB he came up with 2 outs and a man on 1st. Showed a good eye and good plate coverage taking a fastball off the plate and driving it 320 feet foul down the RF line. He eventually grounded out to third and punched his hands together in frustration. As expected, he didn't get down the line very well (to put it kindly.)

In his 3rd AB, he came up with 2 on and 1 out. They IBBed the hitter in front of him to set up a DP. Instead, DT smoked a ball to left, but the LF was there to make the catch.

He ultimately went 0 for 4, but Miami avoided elimination with a 4-3 walk-off win. Jacob Heyward (Jason's brother) hit a 2-run homer, scored their third run on an error and delivered the walk-off hit.

How did the opposing starter look in that game? I know it was Keaton McKinney, our 28th round pick last year.

He was the guy that wanted 7 figures and we had basically no shot at landing.

Can't give you too much of a report. We have two TVs in the office at work, one usually on CNBC and the other on ESPN. I sneakily flipped that one up a channel to ESPN2 so I could see Thompson. Turned it on in the 3rd so I missed the majority of McKinney's short outing.

Jacob Heyward looks like an intriguing talent. Bat speed was eye opening.

Not overly impressive but the announcers liked him, played up his smarts, and bulldog ability. Think he's going to be a good one.
