Junior Lake: The Next Carlos Gomez?

Junior Lake is an enigma for Cubs’ fans.  Some of us think he’s a waste of a roster spot, merely holding a place for the big four prospects to come up and displace him in short order.  Some of us saw him produce last season in the second half and dream on all of the potential he has.  The rest of us just want to know what the guy is going to be. How about Carlos Gomez?  Or...

Carlos Gomez Is Hell-Bent On Having The Fastest Home Run Trot This Season

While most players prefer the “home run trot” after going deep, it appears that Milwaukee’s Carlos Gomez is electing to go with the “home run sprint” this season. After blasting his first dinger of the season against the Braves last night, Gomez raced himself around the base for one of the fastest home run laps you’ll ever see. He won.

Player Profile #18: Carlos Gomez | OF | MIL

Last year we played it safe with Carlos Gomez‘s second-half and ranked him 143rd overall and 61st among outfielders. Oops. In our defense, though, this was included in his player profile last year: It feels wrong projecting him for 29 measly steals, just three more than he had in the second half of 2012 alone, but with a player as boom/bust as Gomez it’s better to err on the...

WATCH: Benches clear in Braves-Brewers game after home run

Carlos Gomez launched a home run off of Paul Maholm during the first inning of the Brewers and Braves game on Wednesday, and the stroll around the bases got a bit weird. Gomez hit the home run and it looked like he stared at it a bit too long for Braves’ catcher Brian McCann’s liking. The jawing continued as Gomez rounded the bases and eventually he came face to face with Brian...

Carlos Gomez - Also, I'm sorry, Carlos - (an illustration with a few introductions)

Today's game happened to coincide with the distribution of Carlos Gomez collectible bobbleheads -and I'd have to think that would be one of the best ones to ever have-  and convenient because getting them via mail would be expensive and would not include seeing a game while you are trying to make sure your soda doesn't tip over and and a coat or something hadn't...
