Dan Uggla & Cameron Maybin Collections Up For Grabs!!!

Dan Uggla & Cameron Maybin Collections Up For Grabs!!!

It’s time for me to trim my current collection down a bit as I make room for some new player collections that I am going to start working on.

And while neither of the lots I am offering up are very big, they are definitely very shiny as they both contains some high quality cardboard.

So, while I do plan on keeping tabs on both of these former Florida Marlins players as they suit up for new teams this season, I am ready to part with the cards that I own of them.

First up is Dan Uggla – 15 cards, a nice lot of multi-year issues.

Cameron Maybin – 7 cards, lots of early issues.

There it is – nothing too spectacular, but both lots would be nice additions to anyone’s collection that appreciates these two ball players.

Want the cards?  Just say so.  Leave me a comment and I will randomly select who gets them.  And shipping is on me!!

Thanks.

Florida Marlins trade Cameron Maybin to San Diego Padres

Florida Marlins trade Cameron Maybin to San Diego Padres

 

From the Miami Herald:

One day after trading pitcher Andrew Miller, the Marlins have traded outfielder Cameron Maybin — the other key piece in their 2007 blockbuster deal with Detroit for Miguel Cabrera.

The Marlins traded Maybin to the San Diego Padres for right-handed relievers Ryan Webb and Edward Mujica, as they all but wiped clean their six-player return from the Tigers in the deal for Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis.

The two pitchers the Marlins are acquiring from the Padres are young but bring big-league experience.

Webb, 24, appeared in 54 games for the Padres last season, going 3-1 with a 2.90 ERA. Mujica, 26, has spent five seasons in the majors with the Indians and Padres, compiling an overall record of 8-9 in 179 games.

And there you have it, the end of the Maybin-era in Miami.  I kind of felt like this was coming, just not in November…  With the emergence of Mike Stanton, Logan Morrison, and Gaby Sanchez this season, and the return of Chris Coghlan in 2011, the Marlins are stacked with young talent.  And of the group, Maybin has under-performed all of them.

Good Luck to you Cameron.  I am hoping that a fresh start out in California is just what you need!!

And remember, it was ’30-YOC’ that supported you all the way!!!

Cameron Maybin’s 3-Run Blast Helps The Marlins Get Even With The Mets!!!

After an embarrassing loss in game 1 of their 3-game series against the New York Mets, the Marlins looked to even up the series on Saturday night.

And nobody(not even this blogger) would have thought that Cameron Maybin would have been the hero!!!  Especially since he did not start the game…

But that is exactly what happened.  Maybin was used as a substitute in the game after the Marlins’ Cody Ross was plunked on the hand by a pitch.  Maybin entered the game in the 4th inning and drew a walk.  But in his next at-bat, just 1 inning later, he launched a 3-run blast into the outfield seats that gave the Marlins a lead that they would not relinquish.  Hopefully this just adds to the confidence boosting of this young and hopefully future star!!!

BREAKING NEWS: Cameron Maybin Launches One Into The New York Night!!!

In just his 7th game back with the ball club, Cameron Maybin just blasted a 2-run home run to deep center field at Citi Field.  And for those of you familiar with that ballpark, he actually hit the ball into the area that houses ‘The Big Apple’.

The shot was a deep blast that went roughly 415 feet!!!
