Mat Gamel is hitting .340 with an OBP of .430 in 21 games in AA and AAA. Thoughts? Comments? Concerns?
One thing that made me frustrated last year was the inability to properly split up the playing time between two great 3B prospects (McGhee and Gamel). One could make the argument that McGhee (with his production) and Gamel (with his potential) both deserved all of the time, so it seemed like no mix would have been a satisfying one.
The downside of Prince regaining form is the reminder that we won't be able to afford him. How much does Gamel's production thus far sway people's opinion as to whether or not we should move Fielder? More importantly (because we know our opinions mean nothing in the grand scheme of things) what do you think the front office thinks about it? Do we really want anyone hitting .320 in AAA without a clear path to the majors?
