Captain Cheeseburger Breaks Up the Wonder Mat(t)s

Yeah, it’s a rumor, but I’m convinced it’s happening.

The incredible Huntsville duo of Mat Gamel and Matt LaPorta will no longer have one another to kick around. LaPorta and his 66 ribbies will reportedly be infused into the Cleveland system as part of a trade for C.C. Sabathia.

The presence of the Wonder Mat(t)s has long fueled rumors that the Brewers’ trade bait would attract MLB sharks. LaPorta was always first on the list, but his equally talented teammates Mat Gamel and Alcides “Matt” Escobar have been mentioned as well. According to ESPN.com, neither of those Huntsville Stars will be included in the multi-player deal.

This could be just the beginning of the MiLB/MLB trade dance. It’s that time of the year. Check out this week’s Z-meter to see who ends up where.
