Don't mistake the title of this post. It's barely May and there's a long way to go. I'm still fairly upbeat and far enough in denial to believe that with a different umpiring crew we would have won in 9 today and the talk would be that Gagne is leading the league in saves instead of blown saves. But I'll admit that in a weak moment after today's loss the idea occurred to me that if the wheels do come off and this team drops significantly below .500 before the all-star break, there's a pretty good bet we'll see Gamel and LaPorta up in the majors long before September. Gamel's defense is still awful (according to what I've read, though I haven't checked it in the last week or so) but it seems to me that, if the season turns out to be a wash, getting him up here to showcase or see if he can hit at this level might not be a bad idea. Ditto for LaPorta. I know they're only in AA currently, but aside from the fear of rushing them up, why wait if the season goes south?
