Players We Won't See in 2009 -- Jonny Gomes
Jonny Gomes is a favorite of the fans in my section of the DBAP. But I have to admit that his playing as a full-time Durham Bull was before my time as a Bulls fan. I have seen him play on his occasional visits back, and it got right noisy behind first base. For myself, however, I’d rather have seen Jon Weber out in left at the end of 2008.
Nevertheless, he attracted some signage back in 2007, as seen in this pretty fuzzy shot.
Jonny’s off to the Cincinnati Reds with a minor league contract and an invitation to spring training. I suppose that could mean that we will be seeing him in 2009 -- as a Louisville Bat.
