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’ 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...

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...

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 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.
