Carlos Gomez doesn't have a problem with failure; his problem is with success. He'll hit a home run, and after that he gets all excited and tries to hit the next one even harder. As soon as a pitcher sees that look on his face, it's time for that outside curve, and here comes another bout of flailing at junk.

To break out of that pattern, Milwaukee's manager should make Gomez bunt for a hit after a home run, or try to draw a walk.

I'd trade Span for Gomez straight up...NOW!!!!!!!!!!
Span, ever since he got the big contract he has pretty much went in the tank...coincidance?....hope he can bounce back this year becuz the Twins desparately need a huge year from him.

No one can argue that Gomez didn't make a great defensive replacement and a good pinch runner. He made some impossible plays. Like Young, Gomez is still a very young player. He can still learn, but the Twins have outfielders in AAA who might soon be ready for the majors. The bad news about giving up Gomez is what the Twins got for him. Hardy is already gone--he didn't do much for the Twins last season; and, it's hard to remember what the Twins got from Baltimore, exactly, for Hardy.

just another example of how former twin players develop into solid players when they go to clubs with constructive coaching ability. it happens time and time again.

Glad he is with another team while he works to be more consistent. This is a journey he may never finish.

Why are we still talking about this knucklehead? Jeff Reboulet had greater presence at the plate than Gomez.

The Twins miss Go-Go's speed, but his plate discipline may never warrant a starting position. Only sorry that JJ is no longer a Twin.

Go-go would be frustrating us fans if he were still on the Twins roster. Too bad the team didn't stick with JJ Hardy though.

Good luck Go-go. Would like to follow his career and wish him great success.
