"(Justin) Morneau, probably this year (he) has better year because (the pitcher) thinks more ‘Gomez, Gomez,’ " the centerfield candidate bashfully predicted after powering the Twins’ 4-0 victory over Toronto in Knology Park. The pitcher "has to be quicker and he throw more fastballs to the catcher. You know, he scared for breaking ball (because) I steal second easy. Now I’m at second — whatever base hit, I score."
Gomez had 29 stolen bases and was caught seven times in 94 games between Triple-A and the majors last season. In 2006, Gomez finished second in the Double-A Eastern League with 41 stolen bases (with nine caught stealings) in 120 games. He led the low Class A South Atlantic League in stolen bases the previous year despite being caught 24 times, swiping 64 bags in 120 games.
