Non-tender guys include Reds outfielder Gomes

Got to admit, I didn’t see this one coming. The Reds just non-tendered Jonny Gomes, formerly of the Rays. Yeah, there had been rumors they might do that. But I thought, given his price, that they’d keep him. He earned $600,000 last season and put up 20 homers and an OPS of .879 in 98 games. That’s some serious right handed clout. The kind you’d like to have as a DH platoon-mate in Seattle. He kills lefties. His career OPS is .801. He was arbitration eligible and the Reds didn’t want to pay him seven figures.
You’d have to think the M’s would take a look.
