Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Eric Thames has been crushing it this season. On Tuesday night Thames hit his major league leading 11th homer of the season against the Cincinnati Reds
Thames, who is in his first season back in the big leagues after spending three years in the KBO, has been drawing some suspicion from other teams and players.
Thames is not fazed about the accusations and delivered this hilarious response after he was subjected to his second drug test of the season last night.
I went the long way around to come back here. This whole thing is surprising me, as well. I really have no goals for this year. I wasn’t trying to break any records or set anything. I just wanted to apply what I learned in Korea to see how it would fare here. I’m shocked at all the results. I’m just here to play ball, and do my best to stay healthy, and stretch as much as I can.
So, yeah, if people keep thinking I’m on stuff, I’ll be here every day. I have lots of blood and urine.
For what it’s worth, Thames was subject to much more stringent drug testing while he was playing in the KBO and never tested positive for PEDs in his time there.
