Well, I wouldn't be "scared" of a Carlos Gomez comp, since Eury likely won't strike out as much. I mean, Carlos Gomez sans 25% K rate is basically a 2-2.5 win player over a full season in CF (mostly due to defense and positional adjustment, obviously). That's a fairly valuable player at $500,000 a year while under team control, right?

They can't all be Jim Edmonds or Grady Sizemore. The world needs ditchdiggers, too.

That's kind of what I was saying.

Gomez has his uses... but he's not the star some thought he'd be. I could see Perez becoming that type of player. A guy that has a couple of years as the starting CF'er for a contending level ballclub.
