With the cap floor going up, I think trading Gomez after this year shouldn't be very hard especially if he has any kind of rebound. He'll be making 5.5 and 4.5 mil with a cap hit of 7.35 both years, that would do a big favor for a cap floor team. They can spend 10 mil and use up 14.7 mil of cap room. For a lot of those teams, spending to the floor puts them in a toght squeeze financially...like Florida Phoenix Nashville Columbus etc.

Who knows maybe a few teams want him NOW...I would do it, but we'd need somebody coming in as a #2 until Eller is ready in another year probably.
