Carlos Gomez was on this weeks Hot List from Baseball America. Baseball America had this to say about Gomez, "No sense in waiting until the second half this year. The precocious Gomez is hitting .375/.405/.575 and leads the PCL with six doubles and six triples."

This would be very intresting if Gomez continued to hit like this. Gomez is 21 years old. This could hurt Lastings Milledge chances if this kid continues to play like this. Remember, Gomez is faster than Reyes, and Jose Reyes had 64 stolen bases last year. Since being demoted, Milledge is 1 for 11 with 5 strikeouts in AAA New Orleans. Hopefully it's just rust because he sat on the bench with the Mets for 2 weeks and only recieved 2 at bats. I will have more on Gomez and the effect it will have on Milledge tommorow.

Also, Ben Johnson sprained his throwing shoulder diving for a ball on Thursday and was placed on the DL. He is expected to be out for a couple of weeks. In case you have yet to hear.
