i dont remember hearing about him throwing a fit when being sent down to AAA, but can you blame him? i can understand why he would be upset when hes clearly shown hes ready to play full time at the major league level.
as mentioned his troubles last season with the AVG had to do with his shoulder. hes not going to be this big AVG hitter, but he should be able to maintain say .260-.270ish type AVG. his minor league career AVG is .271 with .399 OBP, .539 SLG, .938 OPS
based on minor league power numbers he has the potentialto be 30+ HR threat easily if given playing time.

one of the things against him ive read was he wasnt in favour with TB manager, but i like what im reading recently from yahoo..
The Associated Press reports Tampa Bay Devil Rays OF Jonny Gomes hit 7-for-11 with two doubles and two homers during the three-game series with the Colorado Rockies. "Jonny wants to play every day," Devil Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "I believe he's the kind of player and the kind of guy we're looking for. He brings a lot of energy."

if hes the kind of guy their looking for, play him every day!

Yeah, he really is looking great at the plate. That homer was to the opposite field too. Too bad Maddon failed to realize how good he is...

Yeah, I never thought he was that good at fielding. I just think he should have been given more of a shot to start. Dukes was basically handed a starting job out of the gates this year.

I still think given their depth, that they could have given him more at-bats to prove himself. They really did the exact opposite.
