A fan on twitter caught the most Carlos Gomez moment of all time during the Astros Athletics game in Houston tonight.
Carlos Gomez went back and to his right into the left-center gap for a fly ball. The camera shows him ditching a candy or protein bar wrapper mid fly ball. Truly a remarkable display of awareness by Gomez. You can tell by the smirk on his face he knew he just pulled off something special.
This is unbelievable. Carlos Gomez was eating a candy bar DURING THE GAME and threw the rapper as he caught the ball pic.twitter.com/nR0q8dnjt6

This is part of why Carlos Gomez is one of the most fun players to watch in all of baseball. There are few people that have more fun on a baseball field than Gomez. Sometimes pitchers suck resulting in players standing in the field for a crazy amount of time. His body is a machine and it needs fuel.
