Carlos Gomez really deserves his own column. It’s interesting to consider what Jim Callis of Baseball America said about Gomez during a recent ESPN chat. “His ceiling is huge and this year, with the way he’s performed, I have more belief that he can reach it. He’s definitely ahead of Milledge on the Mets’ depth chart and I bet Milledge gets dealt in the next six months.”

Now, I like Milledge and can’t understand why the Mets would consider moving him given that they’ll likely need two starting outfielders next year to replace Moises Alou—who Gomez has already replaced—and Shawn Green, who’s hitting with a Wiffleball bat again). But, yes, Gomez has been borderline spectacular when you consider that he turned 21 in September. But Milledge—rounding into shape after a long-bout of foot trouble—turned 22 in April. (Maybe the Mets and Callis view Endy Chavez as a regular, but I see him as a really good fourth outfielder.)

My money is on Milledge not get trading. Milledge - Beltran - Gomez in 2008!
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
