"When you talk about a guy like me, pretty much every single at-bat, every pitch I see my career is on the line,” Sports Illustrated and the Globe quoted Gomes as saying. "I mean, every punch-out it’s, ‘See, I told you so.’ Then every hit it’s, ‘That wasn’t supposed to happen.’ I don’t need any pats on the back or to make it a sob story. I’m just grateful for the opportunity.”
