Jai and Cameron are friends

It turns out that Miller and Maybin are buddies.

The team made a number of trades in the offseason, and one of them included bringing Cameron Maybin over from the Detroit Tigers. Maybin already has Major League experience and is considered by some to be the top center field prospect in the game. His athletic ability has been likened to the team's shortstop, Hanley Ramirez, who finished in the top 10 of the National League MVP voting this past season.

"It's kind of crazy. We know each other really well," Miller said. "Me and Cameron talked the day of the trade. We're close, but it's a spot we know we're both trying to get."

I hope both of them get to further their craft in the minors next season.  Though it is very possible the Marlins will rush Maybin up to majors, which may not be a good idea.

If that should happen and Maybin sticks, and if Miller continues to improve, he will work himself into prime trade bait status.

Nonetheless, I thought it was interesting that the two are friends.
