Katie / Boston / I love the Red Sox / #39

A character from day one, you never knew what to expect when it came to Jonny Gomes. The beard pulling, helmet punting, american-flag-shorts wearing Gomes didn’t take long to work his way into the hearts of Boston fans. Rallying around the cry of ‘Boston Strong,’ he was behind some of the most heartfelt moments following the Boston Marathon bombings. Something the Boston fans will appreciate forever.

hahahaha i’m sorry this is the best reaction

how surreal must it be to be out on the field mid-game when you get the news you’ve been traded? i’m only a casual tigers fan but it was pretty emotional watching the standing o as austin jackson jogged off the field just now

kingrances:

Andrew Miller is apparently heading to the Orioles.

WHO IS GOING TO PITCH?!

of all the teams to get miller i did not want the orioles

Please, everyone do not forget about that 2013 season — the worst to first, the tragedy of the Boston Marathon, everyone rallying around the city, the finish line, the duck boats, everything, celebrating at home. Might be down a little bit in the win-loss column right now, but do not let that erase any of those memories from last year that I get to wear a ring on my finger for. I’m proud to be a Red Sox for those times.

It’s hard to say goodbye to someone who has overcome so much himself and done so much for a city, especially when they’ve held a special place in your heart for so long. And despite all the mental and emotional preparation I’ve been putting myself through this past week, it doesn’t hurt any less now that you’ve been traded.

It was no secret that you loved it here, and if the last few days were any indication, it’s no secret that everyone here loved you too. You gave us incredible stuff on the field, with two championship trophies, a no-hitter, and a handful of trips to the all-star game to show for it, and you changed lives off the field with all of your charity work and kindness. Your dedication and perseverance are an inspiration to so many people.

Good luck in Oakland, my favorite bubble-blowing ace. I only hope you find your way back to Boston. It will always be your home.

Thank you for everything.
