He's a platoon player who never lived up to expectations from his rookie year and he just got 10M over two years.
I appreciate the bargain-seeking mindset, but you're cherry-picking stats with his OPS from last year.
As for his clubhouse status, you don't seem to have any firsthand information, so you're being disagreeable for the sake of it. I admitted in my post that it was irrational. Gomes was "that guy" who, as a fan of teams opposing his, it was so easy to hate for years. It's a bit jarring that he ended up with the Sox, that's all.
