    I do not see this signing as a white flag on Ross, either. I think the interest is mutual.

    Gomes is more comfortable in LF. To me, a platoon of Gomes/Ryan Kalish makes an awful lot of sense, with Ells in CF, and Ross in RF.

    That's a lot of likeable right there.
    Here's to feeling good all the time.

    @JonHeymanCBS: Gomes was said seeking $3-4M per. Doesn't mean he got that. Anything close would be a raise from $1M made in '12 #RedSox

    @susanslusser: #RedSox exec told me recently that Gomes' leadership ability a big plus for them.

    One thing's forsure, we're going to have one of the better benches in the AL.

    (As it stands now)

    C Ross/Lavarnway
    OF Gomes/Kalish
    IF Ciriaco/Iglesias

    I still think our regular everyday starting short stop will be acquired through trade.

    I originally expected them to sign Ludwick as Ross' replacement, but it turned out to be Gomes. I mean Ross is as good as gone, that's pretty clear if you ask me.

    And I kinda agree with J-Bay, I wouldn't be susprised if we sign Hamilton. Doesn't mean I want him, just a gut feeling. Something big is gonna happen, either JH or JUpton. And if we were to keep Ells, that would be an extraordinary line-up.

    Ellsbury, Pedroia, Ortiz, Hamilton, Napoli/Berkman, WMB , Gomes, Salty/Ross, Drew/Iggy
    Pitching would still kill us, though.
    Edit: Not gonna happen, they won't put JH in RF, so either Ells or him.

    I like it way more than 3 years of overpriced Ross.

    Don't see the Hamilton speculation as relevant btw. Hamilton is a LF as is Gomes. Kalish or Sweeney/Gomes platoon in LF is what i think we'll see.

    Rumors say Tigers could flip us Peralta.

    Hey, he's cheaper than Cabrera.

    I'd like Gomes/Kalish as a platoon in LF.

    For RF, I really want Alex Gordon. We need some lefties in this lineup.

    Doesn't have RF range necessary for Fenway, and what we need is a middle of the lineup bat and he isnt that. A lot of his value comes from defense and if he loses that value with a move to RF then he becomes a guy that we overpayed for in trade.

    lets see in 99 games Gomes had 18 hrs. if he played 130 like Ross did he'd probably have 20+ Hrs maybe 25? but that wont happen next year since hes doing a platoon role

    Yes, best case is Hamilton in LF, that's for sure. But I am not sure this signing rules out Hamilton. I guess they want another LHH outfielder anyway. Kalish in LF....hmmm, wouldn't that take away a lot of his (defensive) value?

    Alright so if Kalish is in RF that woud mean Gomes would platoon in LF with Hamilton? Makes no sense. Gomes isnt a RF.

    I don't see us out of the Hamilton race. We are only paying Gomes 1-4 million dollars. We could easily make Gomes a back-up. He might have not had any offers except ours. We don't know if any other teams were interested.

    I think he's saying they'll try and put Hamilton in RF for a year or two while Gomes is still on the roster. Which I could see happening.
