Red Sox Missed Huge Opportunity Not Starting Mauro Gomez on Slugger’s 28th Birthday (Video)

Mauro Gomez had his 28th birthday on Friday night, but you wouldn't know it by looking at the Red Sox starting lineup.

The first baseman did get into the game after pinch-hitting in the seventh, but NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is pretty sure that things might have gone differently if Gomez had been in the game from the start. See why in the above video.
