Together again. Too bad it’s not in South Florida!!
I hold a special place in my heart for both Cameron Maybin and Andrew Miller. While neither have had much of an impact while in the majors yet, to the true Marlins fans out there these guys mean quite a bit. I’ve been tracking both of their careers and cheering for them to do well ever since ‘The Fish’ traded away Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis for them what seems like eons ago.
While both guys have shown flashes of possible greatness, they have also shown us that they have quite a ways to go to be real contributors to the team each and every time they take the field. Prior to the start of the 2009 baseball season, Maybin has being tabbed as a favorite for the Rookie of the Year award. And Miller had earned a starting spot in a pitching rotation that was the envy of the sport.
Well, now that Andrew Miller has been sent down to AAA ball in New Orleans, he and Cameron Maybin are teammates again. Hopefully they will enjoy one anthers company as they both work hard to get another shot on the ‘big club’ sometime this season. Until that happens, I will continue to root them on from afar.
I still have my fingers crossed that the Cabrera trade was not the most one-sided trade in Marlins’ history!!!
