Twenty-four hours ago, Carlos Gomez was supposed to be returning to the New York Mets. But after Wilmer Flores shed some tears and the Milwaukee Brewers evidently refused to shed some dollars the deal was off.
Tonight, Gomez is a member of the Houston Astros along with starting pitcher Mike Fiers. The Brewers get minor league outfielders Brett Phillips & Domingo Santana and minor league pitchers Josh Hader and Adrian Houser.
Gomez will like going to Houston even better than New York. Last night, the Astros climbed back into first place in the AL West.
