Eh, back to being lukewarm on the idea, but something screams Eric Hinske about him, that deal didn't work out too awfully. I'm obsessing at this point. Rivera's a mini-Vlad type, but he's also what you'd expect from a mature Delmon Young. Dave Cameron said it better than I can here, but I wouldn't pay Rivera more than Gomes, and if that's what it takes I would just keep Gomes, or look elsewhere.
