There is absolutely 0 chance of Gomes becoming a star in MLB. If he goes to the short fields of Japan, he possibly could, but not the MLB.

He could DL for NL teams during inter-league play. :) I remember one game between the Marlins and the Rays, the Marlins had Damion Easley filling the role -- never have I seen a less intimidating DH in my baseball watching life (though I don't watch a lot of AL games). Though he did hit a home run that game. :)

even the NL teams do have a better option at DH than him

maybe he'll just be a AAA player all of his life who knows but lets give the young guys a chance

I mean heck Wiggy would be our oldest Starter anywhere on the roster so the youth is good

Cantu and Gomes may not make the team. News is that it may be one or the other, but both could be gone as well. Neither one is having a good day either.

That is absolute great news, but I imagine some of the Ray fans over at RaysBaseball.com will be absolutely sick as they have a high feeling for Cantu and Gomes both. :-D
