I'd be lying if I didn't say I missed Johnny Gomes lol
Especially because of how much Chris Young sucks. Were giving Young 8 mill for 1 year while Gomes got 10 mill for 2 years. Young f**king sucks lol. I think the only move of the off season I didn't like was replacing Gomes with Young.
Gomes, 32, is on to his fifth major-league team, so walking into a ballpark where he once played isn't a big deal per se. But considering what the A's accomplished last season and, maybe more importantly, Gomes' upbringing, the weekend should bring some heightened emotion.
Gomes is from Petaluma, Calif., in the Bay Area, and the Oakland Coliseum is where he grew up.
"Absolutely (it's a different feeling)," Gomes said. "I know Shane (Victorino) went back to Philly this year, but it's different from me for a little bit. That's where I grew up. I went to A's games when I was 12-years old all the way up. I wore an A's hat last year. But I wore an A's hat for about 20 years. I used to be super pumped to go back before I played with the A's. Just the opportunity to play in the stadium where I grew up watching. But then, on top of what happened last year, it'll be cool."
Hope the crowd goes wild for Gomes when he steps to the plate, just to make him feel better lol
He's no super star or anything but he was a significant piece to our team last year. Him and Coco were the leaders of the team.
