On Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle’s Brian T. Smith wrote a column about Astros outfielder Carlos Gomez’s slow start to the season. Aside from curiously singling out Gomez—rather than, say, the struggling pitching staff (Ken Giles has a 9.26 ERA!)—as a big reason the Astros are stumbling early in the season, there…
Don’t mess with Carlos Gomez. Oh, you’re some kind of tough wall, who thinks you’ll get out of it just because this is Gomez’s home park?
If you had to bet on one guy dabbing after crushing a spring-training home run, Carlos Gomez would have been a very safe play:
The thing that sucks about being Carlos Gomez—a guy who’s earned a reputation as a “hot head,” or whatever it is grumpy baseball men are calling people—is that every little thing he does is going to be taken as a slight.
Carlos Gómez avoided serious injury yesterday as medical evaluations concluded the Brewers outfielder did not suffer a concussion after being drilled in the head by a 97-mph Noah Syndergaard fastball at Citi Field. He even had a friendly Twitter conversation about the incident:
A Noah Syndergaard fastball struck Carlos Gómez in the temple, forcing the Brewers outfielder out of today’s game against the Mets in the sixth inning. Gómez spent several minutes on the ground before returning to the dugout, but we’ve received no word as to his condition.
Mark Reynolds was a guest on MLB Network's Yukfest Live with human balloon-from-the-supermarket-checkout-line Kevin Millar and Chris Rose Wednesday afternoon and got himself videobombed by Carlos Gomez. This was no run-of-the-mill videobomb, though, Gomez was dressed up as Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.…
Carlos Gomez and Ian Desmond came together for a brief colloquy in the bottom of the eighth of today's Nationals-Brewers game, and another day of midseason baseball was momentarily enlivened by bitchcakes umbrage between grown-ass men.
Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy's making a push to get voted into this season's All-Star Game, and his anti-Yadier Molina, anti-Cardinals message features the kind of mudslinging one could only find in a local political ad.
There are many things about Carlos Gomez that are delightful, and this week's issue of Sports Illustrated contains an anecdote about Gomez that will make you want to be best friends with him.
Most hitting changes are subtle and small. Even to the trained eye it can take time to notice a change a hitter may have made months ago. The emergence of Carlos Gomez, All-Star, goes hand in hand with a swing change he made at some point between July 6 and 23, 2012.
The hugs and tears are great, but the sweetest part is the tentative little wave she gives him to say hi.
Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole had some words for Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez hit a triple off of him in today's game. Whatever Cole said, Gomez reacted, and it didn't take long before both benches cleared with players throwing punches.
It's hard to put into words the feelings this Carlos Gomez collage stirs. Mostly, I feel shame, embarrassment, and a little anger. And sadness. Shame, embarrassment, anger, and sadness. We can probably include confusion, too. Shame, embarrassment, anger, sadness, and confusion. I feel these things for Carlos Gomez.…
An awful lot to unpack from last night's Brewers-Braves bench-clearing scrum/fracas/donnybrook/other term that only gets used for baseball near-brawls. It started after Carlos Gomez took his time rounding the bases after homering off Paul Maholm, jawing at three different Braves along the way. But if you ask Gomez, it…
This is a pretty impressive way to end a baseball game. With two out in the top of the ninth and closer Francisco Rodriguez on the mound for the Brewers, Joey Votto sends K-Rod's 2-2 offering deep to center field for what looked to be a two-run home run that would give the Reds a 5-4 lead.
Milwaukee beat San Francisco last night when Josh Prince scored on Blake Lalli's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. But Carlos Gomez had three hits, including an infield single that resulted in a throwing error that advanced Prince to third. Ryan Braun tried to reward Gomez in the dugout afterward, but Gomez…
