All-Time Greatest Devil Rays Advent Calendar 4

Christmas music makes me want to punch someone in the c***. But I do kind of miss advent calendars. Therefore, as my gift to our readers and to all the children of the world, I proudly offer the All-Time Greatest Devil Rays Virtual Advent Calendar….

Every day up till Christmas we will reveal another of the Top 25 Greatest Devil Rays Of All-Time*, and on Christmas Morning, we will unveil the Greatest Devil Ray Of All — The Devil Ray Christ Child….

The 22nd Greatest Devil Ray Ever is….

Jonny Gomes (2003-present)

  • PTownFan’s Guest Post The Regal Madness Of Jonny Gomes is the best place to start reviewing Jonny’s countless contributions to the franchise we all love
  • First Devil Ray to hit three home runs in a single game (July 30, 2005)
  • Tied a major league record on August 15 2005 when he was hit by three pitches in a game against the Yankees (he also homered in that game)
  • Holds Devil Rays HBP records for a season (19, 2005) and career (35)
  • Finished 3rd in the 2005 AL Rookie of the Year voting, receiving 2 first place votes
  • On September 6, 2005 at That Old Dump In The Bronx, he threw out Jason Giambi at 2nd base and Bernie Williams at home in the 6th inning, tying a Devil Rays record
  • Ranks 6th on the Devil Rays career HR list (66)
  • Ranks 9th on the Devil Rays career lists for games played (415), runs (186), and stolen bases (30)
  • In 2006, became the 13th player all-time, 6th American Leaguer, to hit 11 or more HR in April
  • In 2005, led AL rookies in HR (21, tied with Oakland’s Nick Swisher), SLG (.534), OBP (.372), triples (6) and HBP (14) and was 2nd in batting (.282); also set a Devil Ray record for most home runs by a rookie
  • On July 9, 2005, hit a walk-off HR off Troy Percival, which was the 2nd longest homer in Tropicana Field history (474 ft)
  • On September 12, 2003, became the 3rd Devil Ray to collect 2 hits in his MLB debut, both coming off David Wells at That Old Dump In The Bronx

    Chalk, I have printed a copy of your post to place in the time capsule that will be buried in the cornerstone of the Jonny Gomes Museum, right here in PTown. The economy is a little sucky and donors have been hard to find so it might end up under a barstool at the 8 Ball instead.
