    How the heck do you pronounce this guy's name? I've always wondered about that.

    gotta love that power potential....dude can flat out whiff though. I know nothing about him defensively but I do know I'll be suicidal if I keep seeing men stranded on 3rd with less than 2 outs.

    He's defensively challenged. But he treats lefties like they dumped his sister.

    266 .369 .510 .879 career vs LHP.

    Wouldn't mind having him on the bench. He's DH'd way more then anything in his career.

    I like Gomes a lot. Would love to see him in red.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    If I recall he has always ops'd well also. K or walk or Hr sounds like some one we all love who has moved on . Right down to the shaky OF performance.

    He's Javy Pornstache without the stache.

    But has the moxie.

    Put him in the "Go get'em board".

    I'd love to see the Reds sign Gomes. He could be an asset off the bench late in games.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    If the Reds can't get that impact, right-handed bat, then I'd like to see Gomes in a platoon with someone who crushes righties. That would be just as productive as Burrell, cheaper, and less risky.

    How about a combo of say Gomes and Thames ?
