    Gomes

    I love what Gomes brings to the game, but he does make fly balls to the outfield an 'adventure'.  He doesn't have particular speed but does get to the ball in flight, if not awkwardly, and  seems to always make the catch, and he holds on to it, so why do I always hold my breath when the ball is in his direction of the outfield?

    Gomes is not the most graceful outfielder, but he usually gets the job done. At the plate, he supplies occasional home run power when he gets his pitch. Obviously, he is a great teammate. But the bottom line is that he is just another mediocre ballplayer. No more, no less.

    Mediocrity pays very well in the entertainment business.

    As others have stated, he is the not the most graceful looking fielder out there.  He definitely has his limitations as a ballplayer, both in the field and at the plate, which become exposed when he's not utilized effectively.  He's still a great player to have on the roster for an outfield platoon situation, which was optimal last season when Nava was hitting so well against righties.  He's also a great pinch-hitting option.  

    Gomes is not a player to be evaluated in isolation as he can be important player if used to maximize his strengths, particularly as a hitter against lefties and a game-changing power threat.

    This may be the time to use the L/R tandem of Nava/ Gomes in LF. They have to figure out Nava's value before Nap returns especially if Holt stays effective. Somehow this team has to figure out how to score a minimum of 4 runs a game. That was tough to waste a well pitched game by Lackey.

    Unfortunately, Ben signed Drew for $10M instead of waiting for OF help. Now they are up against the luxury tax and the Red Sox outfield consists of Gomes, JBJ, Sizemore, Hassan and Nava. This is the reason why the Red Sox won't succeed this season.

    but not protecting the plate after 2 strikes was painful to watch especially with bases loaded.  That was probably the perfect pitch for Gomes to drive out of the park.

    Gomes has a 12 yr career. Better players have not played that long.

    Gomes gives you exactly what you expect year in and year out. His best was 267 his worst was 210 his average is 244. He is a great clubhouse guy and has every players back on his team.

    If every player worked at every aspect like he has just think how many would be so much better.

    I see Gomes as the new incarnation of Kevin Millar for the RS.

    LOVE my  Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.
