I don't blame him. He has been kept from MLB action after the second year in the row tearing up the International league.
All Gomes has done at Triple-A Durham is hit .340 with 14 homers and 45 RBIs, ranking among the league leaders in each category, but the Rays, at least for now, chose to leave him at Triple A and bring up Taylor.
"I don't think I have anything to prove down here," Gomes said from Norfolk, Va., where the Bulls are playing. "The only thing I have to prove is being consistent in the big leagues. And it's hard to do that from here."
