Cameron Maybin was once Baseball America's Youth Player of the Year. Now after a long contract holdout last fall he is a Detroit Tigers farmhand. After being drafted in the first round it took a sharp scolding from his father to get him to sign a contract and become a Detroit Tiger. After looking at the way the big league club has progressed since last season, we can bet he's happy his father took him over his knee...
As for our thoughts? We as Tigers fans have to be happy as well that Cam's father did what he did, because he's right now the hottest hitting prospect in our minor league system, with five-tool talents reminiscent of Curtis Granderson... with more speed.
He's currently a part of the Whitecaps in Class-A ball, and on the DL for at least another two weeks with a right index finger injury, but I can see him coming back and dominating, looking for that late season callup!
DETROIT! Lets Restore the Roar!
We can all
THE DETROIT TIGERS WILL MAKE THE PLAYOFFS
