:-D :-D
A few things though.


Its the first month of the season and his rate will probably go down so you are blowing it a bit out of proportion.

His K rate "should" definitely go down, but if he continues to swing for the fences with 2 strikes, guess what,,, his K rate will stay extremely high. I also don't think his rate of a homer per 8.5 at bats will keep up for the entire year either.


If I am not mistaken he has also been pitched around quite a few a times and has also drawn a decent amount of walks.

He does have 23 walks in 28 games, so he is averagin close to a walk a game, but I don't think I would say he is being pitched around much either as he only has 1 IBB.


Also of course you would jump on a trade with Gomes because the DRays have absolutely no PITCHING


No pitching?? :-D Well we are 12th in the AL in pitching ERA so far this year, so at least we are progressing. But I would take young bats for Gomes as well as pitching. A nice 1b or 3b would be a nice pickup for Gomes as well.


I say he still ends up with .260-35-110


:-? :-? We went through all of this for 10 points of batting average. I also don't think he will have quite that many rbis, mainly to the fact of his all or nothing swing at the plate. Lugo, Baldelli, and Huff should be back soon, and Crawford will heat up, so then we will just have to see if Mr. Gomes can produce with some RBIs instead of just the home run. I also would not be suprised if he stays healthy all year, if he is indeed challenging for a record in September, but it may very well be Rob Deers AL record for most strikeouts in a season.

I undrestand maybe you are trying to have faith in the DRays staff but come on Kazmir is about all they have.The DRays might have the worse bullpen in baseball

No we are actually 12th in the American League in ERA. Both Kansas City and Minnesota have a worse ERA then the Devil Rays do. Our pitching staff is a at least another year away from being middle of the pack and more then likely closer to 2008. We have about 12-15 good live arms in the minors even though most of them are in the low minors that hopefully can make an impact in a few years to get our team ERA into the 4.2 range.

Well I could go back to the 3 games before that when he went 0 for 11 with 7 strikeouts and say, dang he is pretty bad. Very small sample size there to try and prove any kind of point.
