He was just on a hot streak back in early 2006. He is nowhere near as good as he showed during those 80 some at bats in April of 2006. The Gomes we have seen since is the real Gomes. Pretty much an all or nothing swing with some walks worked in. Terrible defensively. Probably worth only an occasional spot start against a lefty without a great changeup. Definitely not worth starting against righties at any time.
