Yeah, um...I'm actually going to have to...disagree with you on that.
Gomes is way not Cantu. He's mini-Dunn. Big power. Exceptional historical IsoD rates. Decent functional speed. K's a lot. He plays RF pretty well (.879 career ZR) when Tampa Bay is smart enough to get him in the lineup (too infrequently). Should they smarten up and give him regular PT, he'd most likely be the best offensive player on the club. But I'd given up long ago on Tampa smartening up.
Free Jonny Gomes. Free him.
