The 2015 first half all-surprise team

The first half is officially in the books for most teams in the league, as all but four teams across the league have played 81 games. Since we’ve reached this threshold, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at the biggest (positive) surprises of the first half and create a team based on those surprises. We didn’t expect much from these guys this year…but they...

Atlanta Braves’ Cameron Maybin makes Washington Nationals’ Max Scherzer look human

Max Scherzer finally looked human on Thursday night, well sort of. Scherzer had been pitching a one-run ballgame for a good portion of the game against the Atlanta Braves. He had only allowed four hits the entire game against the Braves and then on the fifth hit of the game he lost. Scherzer surrendered a single to Cameron Maybin in the 9th. Before the 9th inning began, he had retired...

Atlanta Braves: Looking on the bright side

Freddie Freeman While the Atlanta Braves are still only six games back in the NL East, trailing the Washington Nationals and New York Mets; they haven’t done enough for anyone to expect them to compete with Washington and New York atop the NL East Standings the rest of the way. Atlanta currently sits four games under .500 (36-40 overall). Mainly because they are 18th in the league...

Atlanta Braves’ Cameron Maybin should be an All-Star

Two days ago the fifth update for the 2015 NL All-Star fan vote came out, and to no one’s surprise there is not one Atlanta Braves‘ player listed on the entire thing, not one single player. Just to clarify, 40 players are named and not one of them wears a Braves uniform. It’s not that outlandish, though. The Braves aren’t a very good baseball team. They’re scrappy, and...

Braves essentially buy Top 100 prospect Touki Toussaint from Diamondbacks

Over the past six or so months, the Atlanta Braves have been serving as a dumping ground for other teams’ bad contracts. They’ve taken on Trevor Cahill, Cameron Maybin (which has actually worked out quite well for them), Carlos Quentin, and Juan Uribe (among others), all owed large amounts of money, in deals while also picking up better prospects. On Saturday night, that strategy...

Daily SP Rankings: Monday, Jun 15

Monday gives us a rare full slate of games (for a Monday) featuring 19 starters that rate average or better. The big stunner, in my mind, is Noah Syndergaard crashing the party at number two overall in his home start against the Blue Jays. Steamer is the biggest driver of his rise as they project a 3.31 ERA the rest of the way, which is somehow better than their projection for Dallas...

Maybin has big hit in 11th to give Braves win vs. Mets

  Cameron Maybin bobbled a ball in center field for an error that allowed the Mets to score the go-ahead run in the seventh, and he got thrown out at home trying to tag up an inning later. All good. He still had two at-bats to turn around his day. Oh, he did. Maybin had a two-run single in the 11th inning after driving in a run in the ninth Saturday, and the Atlanta Braves' beleaguered...

Fantasy Baseball Final: June 11th, 2015

If you read only one thing….. The Braves and Padres’ story has been intertwined all season following the major trade before the season that saw Craig Kimbrel go to the Padres and Cameron Maybin go to the Braves. The rest of the parts are either gone or irrelevant at this point. This week saw the two teams battle it out in an epic series that has included a bench clearing brawl...

Cameron Maybin may be the answer for the Atlanta Braves

Everyone who had Cameron Maybin as the key to the deal that sent Craig Kimbrel from the Atlanta Braves to the San Diego Padres please raise your hand.  Anyone? Me neither.  But after Maybin’s recent hot streak I am starting to reconsider my position. In truth, the Braves made the deal so that they would be rid of Melvin Upton Jr.‘s anemic bat and his huge contract.  Two very...

Cameron Maybin has found a home in Atlanta

When Cameron Maybin was involved in the trade between the Atlanta Braves and the San Diego Padres on the eve of the regular season opener, he was considered by most to be a throw-in. The real piece the Braves received in return was top prospect Matt Wisler, who could make his debut later in 2015. The Braves gave up elite closer Craig Kimbrel and outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. but they...

The Emergence of Cameron Maybin

Cameron Maybin was the tenth overall pick by the Detroit Tigers in the 2005 MLB Draft. The ’05 draft featured copious amounts of talent. With the likes of Justin Upton, Ryan Braun, Alex Gordon, and Ryan Zimmerman, Maybin really had to prove himself. He might not have been as highly touted as the aforementioned players, but he was up there. Six of the top ten picks from that year...
