Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that the Red Sox deal for Jonny Gomes is $10 million over two years, $5 million each season.

That's quite a raise for Gomes, who made $1 million last season.

That seems like a lot for one-dimensional player with severe platoon splits. But this is a market where 37-year-old Torii Hunter received two years and $26 million from the Tigers.

That the Sox are willing to drop $10 million on Gomes suggests they could view him as a regular player and not part of a platoon.
