While I wouldn't call him a full time player, he is an absolute lefty masher. I wouldn't underestimate Gomes' impact on the Red Sox in a division that features David Price, CC Sabathia, Mark Buehrle, Matt Moore, Ricky Romero (I'm willing to say last year was an outlier), Wei-Yin Chen and possibly Andy Pettitte.
