On the one hand, it is nice to see Jonny Gomes finally cash-in and sign a 2-year, $10 million. It just would have been nicer if it wasn’t with the Red Sox. [NESN]

    The Sox really like to sign our used up castoffs. Maybe in 12 years, they can overpay Desmond Jennings

    I think it’s a good signing, he will mash at Fenway

      Just like Shoppach at the Fens?

      I like Gomes’ spirit, but he has the characteristics of a PED user — very streaky, very burly, crazy power.

      I’d expect that he should be in for some decline now that he has his money and no need to risk getting caught. But then again, Big Papi’s fountain of youth and his magic beans keep going in Boston, so you never know.

      One thing is for sure: Hickey and the brainiacs better figure out a different way to pitch to Gomes. It seemed like he abused the Rays this season (cue Cork telling me he hit something like .056 v. the Rays in 2012).

    Gotta wonder how his performance there will compare w/CC’s!! Have always loved his enthusiasm & pure passion for the game!! :D So, will be nice to see him more often, so long as he doesn’t bash us – literally or figuratively!!
