Analysis: Thames, who spent the previous three seasons playing in Korea, is making Brewers GM David Stearns look like a smart man by producing five homers and 10 RBIs through his first 10 games back in the majors. The 30-year-old is now riding an eight-game hitting streak and is 6 for 12 with four homers, seven RBIs and six runs scored over his last three outings.
