Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey said he has heard from a number of former Oakland teammates raving about Jonny Gomes, the outfielder whose signing by the Sox was made official Saturday. "From the first day of spring training [in Oakland], he came in and said this team reminded him of the 2008 Rays and kept the positive message throughout," Bailey said. "Guys told me I'm going to love him. I'm really looking forward to playing with him."
