Gomez's New Nickname

Anthony Rieber at On The Mets Beat, writes about Carlos Gomez and his new nickname on the team:

Nothing has happened so far today, but file this one away: Willie Randolph thinks Jose Mesa might have hit Carlos Gomez on purpose with a pitch in the eighth inning on Saturday. “It’s a little suspicious,” he said.

Gomez has picked up a bit of a reputation as a hot dog, which is why Joe Smith asked Carlos Beltran how to say “hot dog” in Spanish. “Perro caliente,” Beltran replied. Gomez seemed to like the new nickname.
