Wow, I had to look up Gomes signing, because I hadn't heard that and that just stunned me.
I guess the Red Sox still don't know how to spend money effectively in FA?
I'm very happy for Gomes, he seems like a nice guy, but why give 2 years/10 million to a guy that was basically spring training invitee for the last 3-4 years?
Kind of reeks of a team that has a lot of cash to spend but is desperate..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
