    Johnny Gomes

    What better time will there ever be to take a flier on this guy? He has tons of quality's that qualify him as the perfect LF starter for the Red's and on a cheap salary. Wake up you fossil gm and go get this guy!

    An interesting guy no doubt, probably a really solid fit to platoon with a guy like Dorn in LF, assuming he comes cheap enough. Lots of Power, some solid patience and he hits a respectable amount vs. LH. Also gives ya a nice solid RH bat off the bench. How's his defense can he play a respectable LF? And did he get DFA or something?

    For those of you that hate Dunn's defense, this guy will make your heads explode.

    Ouch, sounds like a DH for sure. Pass, unless it's strictly as a bench bat/occasional starter.

    He's mostly been a DH during his tenure as a Ray.

    Now, they've had some whiz bang defenders over there to be sure, but I think it's mostly because he stinks out there.

    Not that I care. LF isn't exactly a primo defensive slot anyway, but the folks that wanna see better defense there had better keep their collective fingers crossed that Walt doesn't sign him.
