Certainly possible...but the question is... will Bourjols turn it around enough to match him even after he comes back to earth? Or will Reimold/Gamel fall further back to earth than he does?

I agree that he is playing over his head. I just think he is a better play while he is hot than Gamel or Bourjos. I fully expect him to be on the WW by the All-Star break but when you have a bunch of guys like this, you might as well play the hot hand.

Believe it or not...Gamel has 3 netSB...Bourjols 0 netSB...and I just think Gamel has shown the ability to be consistent and has the peripherals and history to say that he could still improve on his #s

Headley - 14R, 13RBI, 35TB, .432OBP, 2netSB (for point of reference)
Reimold - 9R, 10RBI, 36TB, .383 OBP, 1netSB
Gamel - 9R, 5RBI, 22TB, .339OBP, 3netSB
Bourjols - 4R, 7RBI, 12TB, .238OBP, 0netSB

Based on this alone I think it becomes an easy decision....


Gamel's SB is kind of a surprise. He has never done that in the majors or the minors so I would be reluctant to count on this for the season. Bourgos on the other hand had 22 SB (not sure about net) and I think he could do slightly better than that this year.

But again, I don't think it matters. I think in the end all three will end up with similar production so you might as well play the hot hand.

I'd keep hold onto Reimold until he proves this is just a ridiculous hot streak
