Thames up for Pepsi Clutch award
It’s an award that goes each month, according to the press release, to recognize “the player who consistently performed his best when the game was on the line” in a given this month — in this case, June. Marcus Thames is one of six nominees along with Jose Guillen, Jason Giambi, Dan Haren, John Lackey and Aramis Ramirez. The voting site is pepsiclutch.mlb.com. Voting runs through next Wednesday.
