I think the OP mislead you, he is with the Marlins now not the Tigers, so Curtis Granderson is not blocking him anymore. I think he has a good shot to get called up in May and become the first player to hit 3 home runs in one game.


The OP's post was made in 2006... when he was still in the Tigers system. B-)


You have to realize that the people around here with a lot of post got them by making unhelpful meaningless post (at least that is all I see around here lately)

I guess you all aren't reading the posts very clearly. I stated that it was an old post and that the guys manning centerfield for Florida right now are only there until he arrives.

FLORIDA, maybe I should have underlined and italicized the word and put it in huge font for all you overachievers in here. :-X

So, does anyone have any insight on the topic?

Yes, we know he is playing for Florida. Did you know that Dontrelle Willis was traded in the same deal? Now that is someone I would avoid.

Hey guys, I don't know if you realized this or not, but the topic was started in 2006. He's not on the Tigers anymore, they traded him to the Marlins

Hey hoya,

You don't have a lot of posts around here, so you're not allowed to make unhelpful or meaningless posts.

What were you thinking? ;-7

Don't know any more about Maybin that Google can tell me, Tommy John. He started off the spring hot but has cooled off a bit now. This was from yesterday.

.278: Cameron Maybin’s batting average through Sunday with the Carolina Mudcats, the Florida Marlins’ Class AA affiliate located in Zebulon. After starting the season with 6 hits in 13 at-bats, Maybin, the former Roberson High player whom the Detroit Tigers took with the 10th overall pick in the 2005 draft, went 9-for-41 (.219).


And then Sportsline's analysis of the situation...
Maybin dominated Double-A last year, too. He likely belongs in at least Triple-A, but Carolina is much closer to South Florida than New Mexico. That is the good news. Maybin could be called up earlier than most elite minor league prospects, especially since he likely should have been the starting center fielder for the Marlins anyway.

In other words, not too much.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Marlins have promoted some of their elite players straight from AA to MLB. They did this with MCab and Hanley so it wouldn't surprise me to see Cameron skip AAA and join the big team mid season.

Seriously, I do think he will be up sometime in June or July, but will not be worth owning this year unless you are in a keeper league in which case he should already be owned..... except I do think you should have him in that one game where he hits three home runs.

He might be worth owning if he plays full time and steals a bunch of bases. I'm not that high on him but he is regarded as a very high prospect by most scouts and minor league evaluators.
