Have seen on two separate Oakland A's fan sites that the word in Oakland is that Gio Gonzalez HAS been called up to pitch against the Yankees. Any truth to this? Would love to see someone from the area provide a source.
His minor league #'s aren't that great but if you look at it game by game it seems he blows up about every 4 or 5 starts and gives up 6 or 7 runs then he goes on another run of 4-5 straight lights out starts.
I haven't followed this kid at all. Is this another one with the talents of Kershaw, but far too young to be pitching in the majors? A 117:53 k:bb ratio does not look good. His ERA could be upwards of 4.5-5.0 in the bigs, probably.

If somehow Fuentes ends up not getting traded due to the Rockies astronomical asking price you'll most likely be kicking yourself. Unless the Rockies lower their demands I think there's a chance he doesn't get traded.
