Gio is getting called up!!!!

Gio Gonzalez is getting called up for Oakland he is a great guy for SO but his control was a problem in AAA this year. I think he is worth a look the last 6 or 7 starts in AAA he was very good.

Start the hype machine...

In truth, I think he'll do a Cueto like entry game, and then follow it up with some rough outings, mix in some gems, and then sorta even out (if he doesn't get sent down before then).

I see: 83 IP, 7 Ws, 4.80 ERA, 1.60 Whip, and 81 k

Is there a link or a source that indicates his imminent call up? Otherwise the title is a bit misleading.

Yeah, the title is misleading. Gio's call up is only going to be discussed according to CBSSportline:

News: After trading SP Joe Blanton to the Phillies on Thursday, Athletics assistant GM David Forst said he had yet to discuss with manager Bob Geren who would fill Blanton's spot in the rotation. Gio Gonzalez, a candidate to be promoted, has been pitching well for Triple-A Sacramento, compiling a 0.95 ERA over his last four starts.

Analysis: Gonzalez is one of the best pitching prospects in baseball and easily the most logical candidate to enter the rotation. Pick him up in AL-only formats and some deeper mixed leagues because his strikeout potential should make him useful right away.

well that can't say it yet because the Blanton trade hasn't gone through the league yet but it is a little misleading sorry for that.
