Ryan Braun says Carlos Gomez has been Googling ‘rich people conversations’
Carlos Gomez, now in his eighth major league season, is truly coming into his own as a big league ballplayer. After semi-productive stints with the Minnesota Twins and New York Mets, Go-Go’ career has flourished as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers. Joining the team in 2010, Gomez has realized his potential as a skilled outfielder and above average batter, resulting in being named an All-Star in 2013.
Prior to his Midsummer Classic nod, Gomez signed a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Brew Crew during the previous offseason, meaning that if he wasn’t rolling in dough beforehand, he certainly was able to after signing the lucrative contract extension.
This apparently has left Gomez in a bit of a bind: How does a person with more money than they ever dreamed of speak in order to represent their status as a member of the newly wealthy in order to fit in with others who also enjoy the “fruits” of their labor (more on that reference later)?
According to teammate Ryan Braun, Gomez was left but no choice but to Google the search term “rich people conversations.”
Braun told Sports Illustrated about Gomez’s online resourcefulness regarding his abundant resources.

Fantastic. If there’s one thing rich people know about, it’s the potassium content of various fruits … so long as their hired help informed them of this valuable information.
