Is Dombrowski's Right-Handed OF Bat Jonny Gomes?

UPDATE: Ryan Raburn also available.
Red Sox head of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told WEEI's Hot Stove Show that he's looking for a veteran, right-handed OF bat to give an occasional  breather to Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Rusney Castillo. Hmm. Looks like former Carmine Hoser—and seemingly perennial World Champion—Jonny Gomes could fit the bill. We all know he hits left-handed pitching like he's in a Beer Softball League. And, he's available. In his two years in Boston he only hit to his career average (.242), but he was a monster in the clutch—and a valuable clubhouse presence. Whaddaya say, Double D?
