    Gomes?

    What would you do with Jonny Gomes this offseason if you're the Reds?

    offer a 2 year 2 million dollar contract, with a 100,000 signing bonus. He is worth having on a team, but not worth more than 1 mil per year.

    18 homers in 233 at bats. If he gets 500 at bats he hits 38 homers. I think a 2 yr. deal for 2 million would be s steal. Look at what we are paying Taveras, look at what we paid Dunn.

    I say pay him 2 or 3 million a season. His defense couldn't be any worse than Dunn's right?

    I'm not suggesting that he could put up Dunn like numbers but I'm also not suggesting you pay him a Dunn like salary.

    If the price is right, sign him.

    Re: Gomes?

    I like him, but lets be realistic. Is this just the case of a guy putting it together to have one year that is way out of the norm for him? He's really surprising lots of NL pitchers this year. There will be more of a scouting report on him next year. With that said, I like him, and his approach, but I'm not trying to get carried away.

    I DO think in a full time role, that he could be a productive player, perhaps an above average one, but I don't see him as a 25/30 HR/100 RBI guy.

    What do you consider pricing himself out?If the Reds offer him arbitration he has to take it at this point.You don't think he would take a 2 year 6 mil contract?If he did you don't think he'd be worth it?I guess that these are questions the Reds have to deal with but if we have any guy playing in our OF right now deserving a decent contract it's Gomes.

    Not if that 6 million could go towards affording a C like Benji Molina or a SS. We have more OF options right now than the Reds know what to do with... Balentien, Bruce, Stubbs, Dickerson, Francisco, Frazier, Heisey, Taveras, Dorn and thats not counting, if we keep Nix, Gomes or Dusty's boy McD. Why waste $3mil a year on a postion of surplus?
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    Re: Gomes?

    Keep him. Sure he has his drawbacks, but how do you replace his production? There must not be anyone in the minors or they would have been here by now. The Reds spent all off-season and this year trying to fill the offensive void in LF. They weren't willing to give up anything of value in rumored trades. I think Gomes has earned the opportunity to stay, whether it be starting or a role player. Great clubhouse guy and teammate, according to many. Pay the man. We could, and have, made worse decisions.

    Re: Gomes?

    If the Reds arent going to go out and get a big bat (which I doubt they will), then yeah...bring him back.
    If he gets AB'S and Bruce hits better, then the middle of the lineup would be decent.
    Top of the order will be the problem if it is Taveras : 1 and Janish : 2.

    Re: Gomes?

    Can anyone post his splits? Can he hit righties?

    I'd keep him. At a minimum he's our right handed platoon guy. I'd plan to play him against left handers and sit Bruce or Dickerson.

    Re: Gomes?

    I dont know. He's been solid for sure, but do teams that depend on Johnny Gomes as an every day player for more then 1 year ever do anything? Shouldn't we aspire for more then Johnny Gomes? I'd say the odds of him repeating this year's success are long odds next year. I'd rather go with a young guy if he won't come back extremely cheap. And I'd expect him to price himself out of Cincinnati.
