Rajai Davis slid hard into Gomes in the ninth inning of Saturday evening’s...

One of the Best Behind the Plate: Yan Gomes

Two years ago, I remember sitting at a table with the Did The Tribe Win Last Night staff discussing whom we thought would be breakout players that season. We got on the subject of Lou Marson and had a “€œLou Lovefest”€ for a few minutes before moving on the next player. Some of us had high hopes for Marson during that 2013 season.
