FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jonny Gomes has become the ultimate gun for hire. Need someone to straighten out your clubhouse for a year or two? Hire Jonny.
But Gomes, now 33, wants to hang around somewhere for a while. He would like to stay in Boston, but (for him) the luxurious and first two-year ($10 million) deal he signed will expire at the end of the season, and then, well, he may have to pack his bags and head to the next challenge.
