Poll: Does Carlos Gomez need to tone it down?

Justin K. Aller

We want to hear what you think about the Brewers exciting, but occasionally frustrating, center fielder!

Carlos Gomez has officially been suspended for three games for his role in the Brewers and Pirates fight during Sunday's series' finale.

Of course, that fight was not the first time that Gomez has gotten into it with players of the opposing team. Last year, he famously got into it with then-Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann, who stood on the third base line to get in Gomez's face after the latter stared down a home run and pitcher Paul Maholm.

Gomez's antics have drawn a lot of mixed reactions from internet-folk and big talking heads. Some are in the camp that Gomez is just a passionate guy who plays hard and sometimes gets a little too excited. Others view it as "thuggish" behavior and not-playing-the-game-the-right-way. That the over-the-top celebrations and the jabbing at opposing players is wrong.

Of course, Gomez's energy and passion can also get him into trouble during play, as well. He'll make big mistakes on the base paths or strikeout trying to hit a mammoth home run nearly as often as he scores from first base with his blazing speed or makes a leaping catch.

So, without much (more) prompting, let's hear what you think. Does Carlos Gomez need to tone down his fiery/explosive/temperamental/whatever-you-want-to-call-it nature, or should he stay just the way he is?
