Earlier this week, Gomes signed a deal to play in Japan. I’ve always liked him. Seems like a very cool dude. But I did not like this comment:
“It seems like the players are getting bullied. It’s February. These people are human beings. They have families. They’ve got to make plans. I’m not trying to get back at baseball by any means. But I’m not just going to hang around. What has changed since the end of September? It’s not like a guy is hot right now or in a slump.”
That’s the type of privileged, out-of-touch comment I would expect from an A-Rod or some other dumbass.
I’m sorry Gomes feels bullied. Hopefully some fresh sushi and a foot massage will ease his pain.
He’s 35 and declining rapidly. Japan should extend his career a bit. Doubt he ever takes another swing at the major league level……
