Mientkiewicz and Gomez file

Eligible players can start to file for free agency today and Chris Gomez and Doug Mientkiewicz have both taken the opportunity to do so. Gomez was decent enough with the bat, but not nearly versatile enough in the field and I'd be surprised if he comes back. Mientkiewicz was decent at the corners and got on base a lot and I'd assume he's going to try to find a job with a contender somehwhere, though I guess if he can't he might be open to coming back to Pittsburgh.
