Re: Reds sign Jonny Gomes to a minor league deal
Kinda cool to see him so pumped to be a Red.
It's a good signing, but unfortunetly he will be asked to do more than he can really provide. He is probably the perfect bench type player a good team needs. Things will really fall together if they find a true big right handed bat. I'm not that optimistic though, and its unfortunate that Gomes will probably take some barage of hate from all of us unfairly because he wasn't the bat we wanted him to be.
