Re: What's the latest with Gomes?

And I don't blame Gomes for not jumping on a minor league contract right away. The guy is better than that. I would love it if the Reds were able to get it done though -- what a bargain.
I think he knows he will be on the Reds roster come Opening Day.. it's just I'm sure he is getting more offers now that reports were claiming that Gomes is on the verge of accepting a Minor League deal. Teams probably came calling. I have a feeling that he won't be a Red in 2010. Instead the Reds would look toward the in house options of Dickerson, Heisey, and Nix.
