Carlos Gomez rocketed a second inning home run off former Astros prospect Mike Foltynewicz. Gomez casually flipped his bat and raced around the bases as the ball cleared the left-center fence. He punctuated his home run with a dab as he crossed home plate.
No question that Brian McCann would have come unglued on Gomez. Gomez do nothing wrong except break the unwritten rules of 'act like you've been there before.' Gomez hit home run, enjoyed it and celebrated towards his teammates not the opponent.
Of course, the old guard will always try to take away a player's shine. Former Reds all-star, former The Best Damn Sports Show Period commentator, television and radio personality Rob Dibble brought the hottest of hot takes:
It's amazing to me a guy like Carlos Gomez talks as much crap as he does with 103 HR's in 3,500 abs in 9 yrs.— Rob Dibble (@robdibble49) March 29, 2016
Gomez had the best response:
Keep feeling sexy Carlos Gomez. Keep dabbing on'em.
