The Padres are reporting that Cameron Maybin is going to miss 2 to 3 months with a ruptured left biceps tendon. Maybin blew up his shoulder making a spectacular diving catch (as he is known to do) against the hated Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles.
Now that Cam is out, the Padres will rely on Chris Denorfia to make spectacular diving catches and inhuman leaps at the wall to rob home runs, etc.
Bud Black doesn't fault Cam Maybin for his play.
"The thing about a play like that ... you can't play at a lesser level, you've got to play a Spring Training game like a regular-season game," Black said. "You have seen players [in spring] play hard. Cam is a guy who plays the game like it's meant to be played."
While I think we all appreciate the sentiment, we can all collective say, "bullsh_t" and know that Cam should've let the ball drop somewhere in front of him, saving himself from a horrible injury. This is called 20/20 hindsight.
