There's little doubt that Jonny Gomes is quickly becoming the King of the Postseason Photo Op. Despite not even being on the rosters for the ALDS or ALCS, so far we've seen him hoisting a jock cup like a beer stein after clinching the AL East and waving around a bottle of tequila after the ALDS.
Today he was carrying around an ax of some sort at Tropicana Field during the ALCS workout day. I asked our own Gordon Edes to find out why Mr. Gomes was swinging an ax, but apparently he couldn't get close enough without jeopardizing his own personal safety. Hopefully he can find out later.
While we're waiting, have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world.
