    Jonny Gomes is gonna rock this club!

    Kevin Milahhhhhh is on mutt and merlonie right now and he is singing the praises of Jonny Gomes. I agree with him. He said where ever gomes went he won. oakland, cinncy etc. other good news is that pappi is making some serious progress. I'm all in loving this team right now. Gomes is gonna be one of the team leaders with his hustle and passion for the game.

    Loves Gomes' approach to the game. He may not be the best player, but definitely impacts a team.

    I can imagine Gomes getting in the face of slackers and good-naturedly and with a lot of enthusiasm, telling them to have some fun and generate some excitement.  This can be very contagious in a very good way.

    Gomes will be nice to have even if Bradley stays up all or most of the season; he'll get his normal 200-300 AB between LF, RF, and DH (to allow for resting Papi) and, if he hits as he usually does, will probably get 15-20 HR out of that.

    Great spirit, like the early impressions of Vic too.

    There was so much maligning of the contract.  And who can argue when you are analyzing by just numbers?  Very hard to put a price on leadership and galvanizing spirit.  Yet, it is crucial for success in sports.  What we are seeing from Gomes after 3 games is exactly what Cherrington paid for, and exactly what made him a leader on the inspiring A's last year.  This club was in desparate need of a Jonny Gomes.  How do you put a price on what he brings?  He is the Millar of this Sox version.

    His 2012 Fangraphs WAR was $8.9m.  Apparently a "good guy".....certainly an extreme pull hitter (from the right, rather a positive in Fenway dontcha think?).  In 333 2012 PAs he went 18/47/.262.  He slaughters lefties, but struggles against righties.  THAT'S WHY HE'S ONLY PAID $5M/YEAR!  If he hit righties the way he hits lefties he's be paid $20m+/year.  

    He's a nice platoon guy, relatively cheap if he maintains his recent level for a whopping 2 more years.....another non-issue....

    Oh, make no mistake, it is an issue Sonics.  How many here have expressed displeasure with the Gomes signing:  overpaid platoon player, scrap heap, etc.

    Gomes, in many ways, is THE issue.  The essence of the much-maligned off-season approach of not throwing the vault at Hamilton/Grienke/et al and filling the club with gritty platoon gamers instead.  How many have railed at this, at Gomes, as somehow fleecing the fanbase?

    Space, what most drives me crazy is when some assume baseball executives are bereft of strategy, or wits, when they do what they do.  One might disagree with said strategy, or the underlying tactics....or rail against the contemporary economics of baseball...but most of the Sox' "controversial" moves since 2002 are blindingly, obviously, strategically consistent.

    Do we have to again rehash how the Sox ended up with Ellsbury, Buchholz, Lowrie, Bard, Brentz, Ranaudo, Barnes, Swihart, Owens, Bradley, etc?  

    Or the brilliant manipulation of the system that meant Bill Hall reduced the Sox' CBT?

    Or the gigantic value of AGon in 2011 ($28m Fangraphs value for $5.5m salary) then when fully priced was used to swindle the Dodgers?

     

    I'm not saying this sort of stuff should be valued....but it's the reality....so rage, rage against the dying of the light and look at JBJ's BA......
