Once a skeptic, Braves' Simmons now sees the value in Gomes' leadership

As an opponent, Atlanta Braves shortstop had heard all about Jonny Gomes' important team leadership, particularly on the Boston Red Sox's 2013 World Series team, but he didn't really buy into the notion that Gomes could make an integral difference on a team until he became his teammate. "You hear stuff about him, you think, 'Yeah, yeah,' But he is that guy," Simmons told the Atlanta...

Red Sox Put On 'Brave' Front, Still Lose, 4-2

Jonny Gomes Back At Fenway (FenwayNation Photo)It has come this. You no longer go to Fenway Park to see the Red Sox win—you go to marvel at the inventive ways they lose. Such was the case last night. It wasn't one particular thing that caused the 4-2 loss to the one-time Boston Braves, it was an amalgam of bad defense, stupid base running, lackadaisical outfield play, crappy starting...

WATCH: Vin Scully tells story about Gomes being attacked by wolf

When Vin Scully talks, we listen. During Monday night’s Braves-Dodgers game, Scully narrated a story about Braves outfielder Jonny Gomes…and how he was once attacked by a wolf as a child. Wait, what? I’m more curious as to why a “hired hand” brought in by Gomes’s grandmother would bring a leashed wolf to a jobsite, but hey, I’m just being picky now. I’d much...

Jonny Gomes Gives Flag Blazers To Teammates

That wacky Jonny Gomes! You just never know what he'll do next. Tattoos in places most humans would never consider putting them, beard growth and shaving on a whim. And now, Gomes is giving all of his teammates an (how shall we say?) interesting Stars and Stripes-themed sport jacket.

Jonny Gomes Shaves and I Can’t Stop Watching

Not sure what it says about me — and I’m not so sure I want to know — but I have watched this video of Jonny Gomes taming his trademark dirt beard about 500 times in the last hour. There really isn’t a lot to it; the guy cleans up his facial hair, eliminates the pesky mustache portion, and drops a few Gomes-isms. But it holds me enraptured. And I don’t know why. Maybe...
