Carlos Gomez and the Best Power-Speed Seasons in Baseball History

Carlos Gomez is not having a good season. His TAv is the lowest it’s been since 2009 when Carlos Gomez hadn’t yet become Carlos Gomez! His defense and base running are up from last year, but still aren’t where they use to be. At this point, the Brewers trade with the Astros seems increasingly one-sided. That said, Gomez had a couple of amazing seasons with the Brewers. It...

Did a columnist twist Carlos Gomez' words? You decide

Houston Astros’ center fielder Carlos Gomez is still upset about the way Houston Chronicle columnist Brian T. Smith quoted him in a piece last week. In that column, which largely finds Smith alluding to Gomez not producing the way fans had expected, also includes lines like “We’ve witnessed the dabs, team-first taunts and me-first prancing all across the field.” Smith also...

Carlos Gomez did not take kindly to reporter misquoting him

Things have not been going quite according to plan this season for the Houston Astros.

Carlos Gomez calls out reporter for printing embarrassing quote

Carlos Gomez is unhappy with a Houston-based reporter who recently published a story that makes the Astros outfielder look bad in more ways than one. Earlier this week, Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle put out a feature about how much Gomez has struggled since the Astros acquired him at the trade deadline last summer.

Carlos Gomez does karate kick in battle with bullpen door, loses fight

When we last checked in with Carlos Gomez on Monday night, he was caught with his pants around his ankles after producing an epic bat flip on a deep fly ball that Alex Gordon snagged with ease.

Watch Carlos Gomez’s bat flip fail (VIDEO)

If you flip your bat after connecting with a pitch, you had better make sure that the ball goes where you project it to. A bat flip followed by an out is a bat flip gone wrong. Carlos Gomez learned that lesson in Monday night’s game against the Royals, when he crushed a Chris Young pitch to left field and did an epic bat flip to celebrate. Unfortunately for him, the ball was caught...
