Million Dollar Question – Carlos Gomez: Love OR Loathe??
By now, you have to have an opinion on this guy. He has been involved in far too many ‘fiery’ incidents and has gained way too much attention for his antics.
First, it was against the Braves last year:
And then it was this past weekend in Pittsburgh:
So, tell me – Carlos Gomez: Love OR Loathe??
Since I don’t know the guy personally I will not go in that direction. Instead, I will say that he is an immature player with a lot of talent. Ultimately, a veteran on the Brewers needs to sit him down and set him straight. I just don’t know if they have someone on the team that will/can do that. And if someone does, will he listen? That remains to be seen.
Ultimately, I lean towards ‘Loathe’. This guy is going to tick off the wrong guy really soon. And when that happens, and the right guy is on the mound, he is going to get plunked. This needs to happen. I don’t want him hurt, and I don’t want him injured. But he needs to be put on his back.
But, the last thing that needs to happen is another brawl. I would hate to see a teammate or opponent get hurt in a fight because of this guys antics.
How about you? Where do you stand on this? Is it even possible to be neutral in this conversation??
Let me hear it!!
