“If we were trying to tank, we would have traded Maybin at the deadline last year, and we had plenty of offers.”
Maybin was traded today for Ian Krol (think Ross Detweiler) and a fringe pitching prospect. So I guess that means the Braves are tanking.
And so far they’re not very good at it. No doubt Maybin would’ve brought a back a heftier return had he been traded after his surprisingly productive first half.
But they couldn’t trade him then because they weren’t tanking, says Coppy, who’s as bad at lying as he is making trades.
