Should be a nice platoon guy. What are the speculative plans for his use?

He's great vs lefties. Perfect for the DH spot and if Manny can play LF at fenway, he can as well. He's a very good teammate fwiw.

As much as I hate the Red Sox, this is a good signing Gomes will do very good at Fenway I wouldnt be suprised if he hit 25-30 homers

Player I don't like on a team I don't like. That's the way it should be.

Disagree. $5 million for two years for a weak side platoon player that can't play defense is an awful deal.

Gomes isn't paid to play defense. He's paid for his bat. He hit 18 hr's in 333 pa's and had on ops of .868. Those numbers should improve playing wall ball at Fenway.
