It seems like some with the Chicago Cubs are ascribing Eric Thames’ hot start to the season to the use of PEDs without actually saying so.

Thames, who spent the past handful of seasons slugging home runs in Korea, has been scorching hot to start the 2017 MLB season. He has six doubles and seven home runs for the Brewers, and produced three hits in each of the first two games of Milwaukee’s series with the Cubs this week.

Thames went 3-for-4 with an opposite field homer off John Lackey in the first game of the series on Tuesday. Lackey talked about Thames after the game and seemed to show suspicion about Thames’ success.

“You watch film on recent stuff and try to figure out a way, you know, to get him out. But I mean, really even the homer hit the other way, I mean, you don’t see that happen here very often. That’s kinda one of those things that makes you scratch your head,” Lackey said.

The video shared by the Chicago Tribune cuts off after he says “scratch your head,” which the pitcher did while winking. Perhaps Lackey gave more context than that, but the wink seemed like he was hinting something.

Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio also raised suspicion by grouping Thames in the same conversation as noted PED users Barry Bonds and Manny Ramirez. To be fair, Bosio was asked by 670 The Score’s Mully & Hanley Wednesday about Thames in the context of Starling Marte’s PED suspension.
