DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the vein of Avisail Garcia's magical 2017, what post-hype failed prospect do you think will break out and have an All-Star season next year?
(Dr. 100 from Las Vegas)
It's not just Avisail either--Smoak, Morrison, Cozart, Alonso all fit this description as well. Almost makes me want to say Pedro Alvarez. Given his speed and glove, if Cameron Maybin gets lucky on health and balls in play he could do it.

If Mike Zunino hits .250 he's an All Star candidate too, I would think. (Nick Schaefer)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)The Tigers took on substantial salary in acquiring Cameron Maybin. Do you believe they intend to platoon him with Gose? Also, given the type of hand injury he sustained, do you think it will affect his batting performance?
(Dandies3 from Pa)
Yes, but it won't be a straight platoon and Maybin gets most of the time. Hand injuries are hard to predict. They tend to sap power more than other areas of a player's game, but it is an injury that can linger if a player comes back too soon. (Mike Gianella)
2016-03-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)The Tigers took on substantial salary in acquiring Cameron Maybin. Do you believe they intend to platoon him with Gose? Also, given the type of hand injury he sustained, do you think it will affect his batting performance?
(Dandies3 from Pa)
You asked this already, this question is nice.
But I don't think I'll bother, to answer it twice. (Mike Gianella)
2015-10-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who's in center for the Cubs opening day? Bryant? Fowler? Hetward? Almost at some point?
(BC from Urbandale)
I really don't know. That'll be interesting. I think they'll keep their options wide open for as long as possible, looking for a reliable (because they need production out there in order to come back next season near this level) but short-term solution. I don't think they want anyone totally blocking the way of Almora, Happ, or Eddy Julio Martinez, whoever ends up developing most smoothly. Cameron Maybin could be a trade target. Austin Jackson could come back on a one-year deal. (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)I've been a huge Dom Brown fan, but I feel he needs a deal out of town to realize his potential. Have you had a chance to see him, and do you think there's hope? Thanks for the chat
(JJ from mountain top)
I'm going to be completely honest, I bailed on Dom Brown YEARS ago...Your chance to sell was when he had that one ridiculous month like two years ago. A change of scenery could be just what he needs...look at Cameron Maybin... (George Bissell)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)I've lost both Stanton and Springer, but my team is still in 1st place thanks to Donaldson and Martinez killing it....and my continued faith in Cameron Maybin being rewarded. Steven Souza should be back soon, I picked up Sano, and I'm hoping the Marlins act sensibly and bring Ozuna back up. But should I try to trade either Stanton or Springer? Maybe target Puig or CarGo/Braun? Maybe Yelich. Or just hold on for H2H playoffs? Thanks.
(Matt from Cambridge)
Miguel Sano is a huge add for you Matt. I would consider moving Stanton/Springer for Ryan Braun...We talked about him on the latest Flags Fly Forever podcast last night, he's basically producing at a 1st Round level right now, he's the name to target if you're going to make a move. (George Bissell)
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Getting greedy here, Mr. Breen. How about a post-hype blossom in Cameron Maybin? He's been fairly stellar since getting regular time at the beginning of May - SSS caveats aside, is this a former top prospect finally shining or a pile of pyrite?
(David W from Atlanta)
It's probably somewhere between the two. I wrote about him today, actually: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=26612 (J.P. Breen)
2015-04-06 20:15:00 (link to chat)Who do you like better this year, Eric Young or Cameron Maybin (cats being OBP, R, HR, RBI, SB)?
(Dennis from LA)
I choose death (Craig Goldstein)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Will Cameron Maybin be moved? I am foolishly still in love with the tools and he did tear his bicep last season. Will he start anywhere or is a just a defensive replacement for that god awful Padres OF defense? The same goes for Carlos Quentin, who I would love to get s DH spot somewhere, so his knees don't fall off.
(Dylan from RI)
Keeping Maybin around makes sense to me because the Padres don't have a center fielder. I guess you could keep Venable instead, but why not keep both? Quentin didn't stay healthy when he was in the AL and could DH regularly, so I don't think a move would help him much. I'm just staying away from Quentin forever and always unless I can pick him up off waivers when he's hot. (Ben Carsley)
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)I finished 3rd in my 20 team dynasty league this year. The odd part is that I was 7th in Runs an 8th in RBI's, despite being 1st in home runs and utter lack of SB and AVG. How do I deal with this? I counted on guys like Maybin and Lawrie, but they failed to get me SB. I'm unsure how to deal with this. Donaldson and Upton might be my only 100 RBIs guys for example
(Gila Monster from Boston)
It's difficult to answer this without looking at a roster, but I'd expect lesser disparity between R/RBI and HR next year and focus on SB and AVG instead. Counting on Cameron Maybin and Brett Lawrie is not a good start, unless "days on DL" is a stat. Try to give up some prospect depth for a high-average, 20-plus SB guy if you're trying to compete next year. (Ben Carsley)
2014-07-31 19:30:00 (link to chat)What are a few guys you've bet on prior the season that haven't failed you? Which were to totally wrong on? Personally I was offered Sano for Kluber on Day 1 and rejected it. I also drafted Cameron Maybin betting on a 12HR/30SB season
(Exur Kun from Unknown)
Oh, plenty. Hosmer, Sabathia, Choo, Bogaerts (takes drink), Nathan, Verlander, Cain ... hasn't been my strongest year, in all honesty. (Ben Carsley)
2013-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)So the Padres...what is going on?
(BobcatBaseball from Athens, OH)
I don't think we really had high hopes for this team, but yeah...

It's not good, and I don't expect it to get good. There's really nothing I can say to provide any hope in pitching. They've traded away their pitching for hitting as a general rule, and now all their pitching prospects are hurt, so it's time to keep waiting.

On offense, I guess you can say that Cameron Maybin won't be this terrible all year, and he's been more unlucky than strikeout-prone. Grandal will come back and the Padres won't pick first in next year's draft.

That's as optimistic as I'll get. (Zachary Levine)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)What is your perspective of Cameron Maybin and Dexter Fowler? Are they similar? what do you see from them in the next three years fantasy wise?
(Outuv from left field)
Both are talented players who have a hard time putting it all together. For the next three years I'd rather Maybin than Fowler. (Paul Singman)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)It's easy to imagine what can go wrong for the Padres this year. What has to go right for them to be a *good* competitive team -- let's say 80-85 wins?
(Shamu35 from the twitter)
Good question, Shamu. The easy answer is "a lot." More specifically, they need Nick Hundley and Cameron Maybin to step up their games, Jedd Gyorko to establish himself at second base, and most importantly get a surprise or two out of the rotation. That last one is going to be tough, though, as there just isn't anyone who inspires confidence. (Geoff Young)
2013-01-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)Which former top prospect do you think has a better chance of turning into an allstar caliber player, Cameron Maybin or Colby Rasmus?
(Art from Lake Forest)
Maybe Rasmus, who has more power and could more easily withstand a move to a corner (his defensive numbers are bad). But I'm not keen on either becoming perennial All-Stars based upon what we've seen so far. (Jay Jaffe on the Hall of Fame)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Mark, thanks for the chat. What is your take on Cameron Maybin? Will he put his potential on the stat sheet this year?
(Ed from San Diego)
My pleasure, Ed. I've always liked Maybin, dating back to his days in the Detroit system. I think his tools play pretty well right now but there is still room for improvement. He's still only 25 and his walk and strikeout rates actually improved last year, despite his perceived struggles at the plate. I don't think he's going to turn into the Eric Davis-type monster he was once billed as, but I do believe he can still take steps forward; those steps just may not always be visible on the stat sheet. (Mark Anderson)
2012-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Cameron Maybin's immense raw power ever translate into a 20+ home run season?
(Xolo from Sudamerica)
Probably high-teens at least. We'll see how the fence move helps SD players combined with Maybin's continued maturation. Currently he simply doesn't hit enough balls in the air. (Paul Sporer)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you soured a bit on Guzman or is Brinson a Justin Upton starter kit?
(rangerfans2 from Fort Worth, TX)
I haven't soured on Guzman at all. Brinson isn't an Upton starter kit. If you have to force a comp, force Cameron Maybin instead. Brinson is a lot of fun to watch. He can play a very good center field, he can run, and he can square balls. It s nice package. (Jason Parks)
2012-07-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Assuming I stay healthy, how relevant am I in fantasy? Better than Rajai Davis or Cameron Maybin for example?
(Lorenzo Cain from KC)
I like all 3 of you because you play for skippers that let you run but I'm still taking you last in that trio. (Jason Collette)
2012-07-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Derek- which rookies currently in the minors do you see having the biggest impact this season? Any do you see any of them as upgrades from say Cameron Maybin or Ted Lilly (bottom of my roster)? Thanks
(DanDaMan from SeaCliff)
At this point, it's pretty much all about opportunity. The Trouts and Harpers of the world are already here, and now it becomes a waiting game for a lot of guys. With Tabata getting demoted, that time could be now for a guy like Starling Marte. Some other names to consider: Wil Myers, Ryan Lavarnway (if traded out of Boston), Danny Hultzen, Jake Odorizzi, Jedd Gyorko, Johnny Giavotella, Mike Olt, Travis Snider. It's a gamble dropping an established big leaguer for one of those guys, but in a shallower league where they're just bench players anyway, gambling on some upside isn't a bad idea. (Derek Carty)
2012-06-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of spider does Lewis Brinson remind you of?
(bradleyankrom from TPAFLA)
This came up during the draft. Brinson, who the Rangers popped, has long levers. He gets compared to Dexter Fowler, Cameron Maybin, and so on. But look at this guy. He looks like a spider. I mean that in a good way, too.

Plus, he has an inspiring backstory. I hope he has a good, long career. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-04-19 14:00:00 (link to chat)You can choose three young outfielders to start a franchise. Any player with less than three years of service time is eligible. Who do you take and why?
(Hudsonbelinsky from Albany, NY)
Sheesh, this one's going to be tough on the fly...

I'll take Cameron Maybin in center field, for the defense and the potential that he develops more power. Giancarlo Stanton in right field for the glove, arm and the potential to go "arrivederci" on any pitch. And Logan Morrison in left field, because being an epic tweeter is a must for the Rathmans. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-03-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Drew Stubbs and Cameron Maybin both have similar skill sets, and seem to be raked close to one another. Which do you prefer this year? Why?
(Jeff from Atlanta)
I'll take Stubbs. Longer track record, more power, better lineup, still lots of SBs. (Derek Carty)
2012-02-23 11:00:00 (link to chat)How many things have to go right for the Padres to win NL West? Other than Diamondbacks, every team has big holes. Also, wouldn't the Angels now becomes the natural rivalry for the Padres by virtue of Pujols signing (he who took out 2 starters in the same game)? No disrespect to the Mariners, it's hard to root against them.
(Max L from Diego)
More than I can count. Nick Hundley and the entire rotation have to stay healthy, Chase Headley has to prove that last year's gains were legit, Cameron Maybin has to build on his breakout 2011... a lot has to go right. But yeah, the one saving grace is that there are no dominant teams in the division. As the Diamondbacks proved last year (and as the Padres did in 2010), anything can happen in the NL West. As for the Mariners, how can you not root against them? The Vedder Cup will be ours! (Geoff Young)
2011-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have: Cameron Maybin or Desmond Jennings?
(Anello from Chicago)
Jennings. Not even close. (Jason Parks)
2011-09-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your take on year 2 of the Jed Hoyer era in San Diego?
(Arby's from Good mood food)
Why wasn't Heath Bell traded? ...I have to admit I haven't seen too many Friars games this year, being generally more focused on the AL East, but it's really hard for me to come to a judgment in that other than Chase Headley, Cameron Maybin, Kyle Blanks, Corey Luebke, and Mat Latos, and (likely) Anthony Rizzo, I see a lot of guys who are basically just interim types. I wish they had gotten more playing time for James Darnell. (Steven Goldman)
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do see Cameron Maybin turning the corner this season and what do you see as his potential peak?
(Rich from Maryland)
His home road splits are CRAZY. 200 points more of OPS on the road than at home. He's a really good CF, a hard worker & a great kid. I feel like he's a legit ML CF yeah, but the numbers are always gonna look worse b/c he plays his home games below the Marine layer. (Mike Ferrin)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)How many more AB's do you need to see before you can declare me a bust?
(Travis Snider from Texas)
Well, you're in your age-23 season, so there is reason to be patient. The results have been disappointing thus far, but, like with Cameron Maybin, I'm willing to be patient given you spent years that probably could have/should have been played in the minors in the majors instead. (Marc Normandin)
2011-02-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is more likely to break out this year, Desmond Jennings or Cameron Maybin? What type of stats do you see from the two of them?
(Sean from DC)
I think Maybin has room to develop into a good player. I'm still a fan of his tools. I think he could put up this line: 010010001100110 (Jason Parks)
2011-01-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Going into the 2011 season, are the Padres better on paper than they were going into the 2010 season?
(Jeff from Bay Area)
I'm glad someone asked me this question because I've been looking for an excuse to say "Yes, yes they are." The rotation is better, the bullpen is better, the defense is better. The lineup is worse, sure, but they have healthy Ludwick in there, Orlando Hudson instead of David Eckstein, Cameron Maybin's potential instead of Tony Gwynn's impression of his uncle at the plate...if they aren't better, they are at least as good. Gonzalez is one of the best players in baseball, but he's one guy, and the Padres upgraded in multiple spots. Hawpe should hit if he's healthy, too, and I think that will make this team surprise a lot of people again. Though not 90 wins surprise them. (Marc Normandin)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)I am still not sure whether I should keep holding on to Cameron Maybin.What are the odds that he becomes Mike Cameron at best ?
(Spirou from Montreal)
Not seeing it. He still hasn't learned how to run routes in the outfield and Mike Cameron was a defensive beast. Maybin might grow into the offense of Cameron, but the defense ain't happening. (Eric Seidman)
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)When does a prospect/young player cross the line and become a bust? Would you consider Alex Gordon, Brandon Wood, Cameron Maybin, Andy Marte, and Joel Guzman busts?
(Steve from Las Vegas)
Andy Marte - yes. Brandon Wood - yes. Cameron Maybin is approaching that territory though he could still be a somewhat useful major leaguer. Alex Gordon is only going to be a bust relative to expectations. He can still be a productive major leaguer, unlike say Andy LaRoche, but he is not going to become the perennial all star many originally thought. To me, there is no clear line of demarcation but rather a situation that has a certain feel to it. Wood has shown no signs of improvement, nor has Maybin. Gordon has. (Eric Seidman)
2010-12-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)So you Red Sox joy counterbalances your Padres' sadness on the Gonzalez deal?
(formersd from San Diego)
There really isn't any Padres' sadness, honestly. Here is my thinking.

As great as Adrian Gonzalez is--and he's one of the top players in the game--he is one guy. The Padres had reason to believe the 2011 team could be a bit better, with an improved rotation, a full season of (healthy) Ryan Ludwick, Cameron Maybin possibly blossoming in center with another year in the majors, Kyle Blanks coming back from his TJ surgery, etc. If they acquire Brendan Ryan in a trade to man shortstop as is expected, and then sign someone like Derrek Lee to play first base, then you're talking about a team that could still win something like 82-85 games. Then, in 2012, you have Casey Kelly, Anthony Rizzo, Simon Castro and maybe Drew Cumberland coming up if he continues to tear up the minors. That is an exciting roster all of a sudden, and it was brought about without fielding a terrible team.

The Padres can trade Bell and Ludwick in July and still have a decent team, assuming Aaron Cunningham or Kyle Blanks can slot into Ludwick's place and they bump Mike Adams up to the role of closer. The gloom and doom mentality coming out of San Diego after the trade of Adrian Gonzalez is almost enough to make me start a Padres' blog in response. (Marc Normandin)
2010-11-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is it too early to give up on Alex Gordon, Cameron Maybin, and Brandon Wood?
(Bobby from LA)
26, 23, and 25 years old-- I don't think so. But it's certainly possible that none of them are as good as once hoped. (Matt Swartz)
2010-08-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the better bet to produce in 2011? - Alex Gordon or Cameron Maybin?
(Chad from Land of Unrealized Potential)
What a question! I'll go with Alex Gordon. Cameron Maybin still hasn't shown me much I'm impressed by, even in the minors (though I do expect him to breakout eventually, this isn't me giving up) while Gordon has had some poor luck while back in the majors. (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Career All-Star Appearances for Cameron Maybin, 0.5, Over or Under?
(Bobby from The Zoo)
I'll take the over. If you'd said .7, I might have answered differently. I like his chances of making a fractional All-Star appearance, but only if the fraction is relatively low. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Combined career all-star appearances for Brandon Wood, Andy Marte, and Cameron Maybin, 0.5, Over or Under?
(Karen from NY)
Now there's a depressing thought. I never thought Brandon Wood's approach would translate to the majors--I've been harping on this for five years or so, seriously--but I also didn't think he'd tank *this* hard. Cameron Maybin's ceiling seems to have quickly fallen from "Eric Davis, maybe?" to "Mike Cameron, maybe?" to "Let's just keep our current outfield out there for now". Such an odd situation. (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Post-hype prospect showdown. Better year in 2010: Homer Bailey or Cameron Maybin?
(holgado from pelham, ny)
Bailey. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is this the year for Cameron Maybin's breakout?
(Scott from NJ)
I say he turns it on by June, but what's his ceiling these days? Are we still looking at Eric Davis, or is he Mike Cameron? (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. Do you think Cameron Maybin will finally realize his potential this year? if so, what is that potential? 10hr/50rbi/15sb reasonable to expect?
(Fish Fan from Florida)
I think he's capable of being Mike Cameron once he puts things together, but I think I'm also lower on him than most. Maybe a poor man's Cameron is a good comp for the 2010 Cameron.

That sentence is confusing out of context. (Marc Normandin)
2010-01-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who has the better year in 2010 Cameron Maybin or Carlos Gonzalez?
(cubfan131 from IA)
Cameron Maybin. I know it's getting to the point where he either has to put up or shut up but I just think he has the talent to be a superstar. I'm not so sure that I can saw that about Gonzalez. (John Perrotto)
2009-09-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cameron Maybin's stance and approach at the plate seem to be improved since his recall. What are your thoughts on him? Is his ceiling still as high as it was before this season?
(Jorge Posada from NY)
You have mistaken me for Kevin Goldstein or perhaps someone who knows about batting stances. (Will Carroll)
2009-08-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Cameron Maybin?
(bellfree from Colorado)
I believe. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-07-24 16:30:00 (link to chat)Is there still hope for Cameron Maybin? While he was initially projected as an Eric Davis type, his power seems to have disappeared. Can he become anything more than a CF with a little speed and pop? Thanks.
(Fish Fan from FLA)
There is PLENTY of hope, but the Marlins need to get off their butts and bring him up. I don't know what more he has to prove in the minors. (Eric Seidman)
2009-05-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Dexter Fowler for this year and his long term potential?
(mgaynor7475 from Cumberland, RI)
I'm on record as loving, just absolutely loving, Fowler. I think he's already a major-league center fielder, a better player than, say, Cameron Maybin is. His power is still coming, and he'll have to manage his contact rate, but he'll hit .270/.340/.410 this year and go from there. I could see him peaking like Curtis Granderson, maybe a bit better. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-03-10 14:30:00 (link to chat)Hi Joe, Whoever wrote the Marlin chapter has them "making a play at the wild card right now." Pecota has them at 69 wins. That's quite a disparity. What your take on the Fish
(Lenny Dee from Portland OR)
I like when that happens, and I think it shows the value of having an analyst's take as well as the system's. I think the Marlins have a heck of a core. However, their defensive problems and OBP issues limit their upside. I'm hopeful that Cameron Maybin can hit enough to play CF and help the defense, because that staff needs a true CF. Overall, I say 78 wins. 2010 should be a fun year.

That's all on-field, of course. They remain something of a disaster overall because of the relationship with the city and the fans. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any more minor leaguers likely to get the call and make a splash this year?
(Jay from Madison)
I think that Cameron Maybin and the PIT outfielders might be viable, depending on how quickly/if they trade either Bay or Nady. (Jeff Erickson)
2008-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Cameron Maybin's K problems seem to be getting worse, not better. How concerning is this?
(Juan Duran from (Billings, MT))
It's concerning where you start to wonder if he's really just Mike Cameron in the end. I'm not convinced of that . . . yet. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is it possible that Justin Upton is a little undervalued going into this season? i.e., is Upton *more* ready to mash than he is thought to be? What kind of season do you envision for the kid?
(Humphrey from Phoenix, AZ)
In fairness, there's a little Cameron Maybin here, in that Upton was kind of rushed to the majors to cover a problem for a team in contention. He has more experience and had more success at higher levels than Maybin did, but I'm not convinced he's ready to be an MLB right fielder at 20. Love him, love his upside, think his slipping #5 in the NASA draft was criminal, but just not excited about '08. (Joe Sheehan)

(Chad from St Paul)
I think Maybin is the better bet because he's closer to the Major Leagues, and in terms of raw tools, he still grades out better than Jennings. I agree that the strikeouts and groundouts are concerning, but let's be real here, Maybin did all that and still hit .300/.400/.500 in the minors. Plus you move Maybin to the NL, and he's definitely the better bet. (Bryan Smith)
