In response to softlaw2's comment:
Gomes is a good 4th Of'er/ last pinch hitter, as long he plays in the smallest OF position when he does play in the OF. He is not an everyday OF'er because he's a butcher in the field and a splits OPS guy.
Agreed. To wit, being used in a DH platoon is an excellent way to magnify his strengths and mask his weakness, and also looking like a nice resource with Papi currently fulfilling Bill806's vision.
