Carlos Gomez flips bat, dabs, breaks every unwritten rule after homer

Carlos Gomez is not shy about enjoying his homers -- even in spring training.

Paging Goose Gossage, Mike Schmidt and Johnny Bench. We have something you might want to take a look at.

Houston Astros slugger Carlos Gomez, known for pimping his home run trots, put a little something extra on this solo shot in the second inning against the Braves on Monday.

Where do we begin? The bat flip is a little disappointing, if you’re comparing it to the Jose Bautista end-all, be-all of flips during last year’s playoffs.

The dab, an obvious homage to Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton, was solid but not spectacular. But remember this is just spring training. Gomez has plenty of time to work on these aspects of the game and further enrage old-school purists.

Gossage started this old school vs. new school argument when he took aim at nerds and Jose Bautista. Bench said he wanted to teach Bryce Harper a lesson about respecting your opponents. Schmidt also vented, about his feelings toward bat flippers.
