Just as it is true for the entire team, that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, so it is with Gomes, whose contributions to winning can never be fully captured on a stat sheet. The man does not have a false bone in his body, sets a standard for accountability that permeates the entire clubhouse, and has a pressure gauge that was busted at "low" a long time ago. The most logical candidate on the team for late-inning drama. -- Edes
