Fernando Martinez

In the aftermath of the Mets bullpen disaster against the Phillies last night, reports are saying the Mets management had a meeting today talking about the serious possibility of calling up Fernando Martinez.  (This is as per Andrew Marchand on 1050 ESPN).

Now, is this idea:

A) Stupid

B) Insanely dumbfoundingly stupid

From my personal perspective, Fernando is doing well in AA but is nowhere NEAR ready to contribute on the major league level.  What could he possibly add that a AAAA slugger couldn't do (Chris Aguila and Valentino Pascucci are currently mashing the ball in New Orleans, for instance)?
