imagine a moose struck by a tranquilizer dart and as it begins to stagger this way and that with occasional bursts of effort imagine that trying to catch a fly ball
The more I think about this, I think it just came down to Ross, the character/limited fielder/left masher, got too expensive so they found another dude who fit that role.
(Also, Susan Slusser twittered that the Red Sox targeted Gomes as a clubhouse leader. I guess that could be good, and the clubhouse has been a problem, but this team needs wins and runs first.)
Gomes is generally considered one of the bigger pieces of #### in baseball, so I have no idea why he's considered a clubhouse signing.
Another thing about this signing that people haven't mentioned: it gives the Red Sox a backup at DH for when/if Ortiz has his annual 2-3 weeks off due to injury.
Two weeks while Ortiz gets a midseason rest is more acceptable than two months.
