2013-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ian Thomas? Prospect or suspect?
(Henry from Oakland)
One more from Mark Anderson, who had the misfortune to be online and available during my chatting time:

"I feel like I'm bursting bubbles today when I pinch hit for Ben. Thomas is more of a suspect for me. He's got fringy velo, decent command and a solid-average changeup. I don't think the breaking ball is enough for him to have success as a left-on-left guy, which leaves him as more of a good org arm for me." (Ben Lindbergh)
