    Time to move Maybin up to Lakeland or Erie. He has proven he can kick ass at West Michigan, so what’s the point of keeping him there?

    He’s 19. They’re giving him time to adjust to being a professional and get familiar with his surroundings. Plus they said WM is a playoff calibre team so they want him to get the playoff experience and camaraderie. He’ll play through Lakeland and Erie next year, there’s no rason to rush a 19 y/o with holes in his swing still.
