#Orioles still have interest in OF/DH Jonny Gomes, but sticking point will be contract length. Gomes seeking multiple-year deal. O's aren't.


Hopefully we don't see another surprise multi-year deal as we did with Betemit.

This guy is an interesting case. He DESTROYS LH pitching and should probably have his GLOVE destroyed.

I would only offer him a one year deal. If he plays well enough he'll get more money from us or someone else next year.

I would not advocate a multi-year deal either. However, as Ofan said above his hitting against LHP is tempting. The fielding is another matter entirely. His total dWAR for his career is a ghastly -10.1

Ghastly! :shock:
