I happened to be looking at the PawSox stats to check in on what Middlebrooks has been doing (yup, he's still tearing it up), when I noticed that Mauro Gomez is also having a good offensive season. His career minor league hitting stats are pretty good without getting a hint of playing time at the major league level. Gomez's defensive stats are not appealing, but you'd think that he could be a decent DH for a team at the major league level. So I did some research and discovered that during his time with the Braves he "beat up on cupcakes", so I guess it all makes sense now. Note to other prospects: do not beat up on cupcakes because it will cause holes in your swing at the major league level.
Let the random PawSox chatter continue....
I hope they don;t trade him within the division so he beats up on our cupcakes.
