The cooler is about the only thing he can make contact with.
Rays outfielder Carlos Gomez is having a hard time making contact this season—he has a .198 batting average—but not with the dugout water cooler.
Marlins pitcher Jose Urena struck Gomez out in his first at-bat of Wednesday’s game and Gomez reacted by taking his frustrations out on the hydration vessels. He attacked the first cooler so aggressively that he knocked his batting helmet off.
Yes, I said “first cooler” because he then went after another one on the dugout ledge.
Geez, even Paul O’Neill never went that ballistic.
