Cameron Maybin Complains About Panda Express Food, Angers Padres Ownership?
Cameron Maybin has never been a guy that plays by the rules — just check out his wacky at-bat music if you don’t believe us. The young outfielder was traded to San Diego from Florida this off-season, and he may have already gotten himself into a little hot water by criticizing ownership indirectly. Padres fan site Gaslamp Ball picked up on a tweet by Maybin Tuesday where he complained about the food at Panda Express:
The one word blacked out was minor profanity, but you could imagine what it says. Ordinarily you might not think anything of the tweet, but some astute Gaslamp Ball readers made the connection that one of the team’s minority owners — Tom Davin — was also the CEO of Panda Express from 2004-2009. It’s not the worst thing that could happen, but I’m sure it may result in a phone call from Mr. Davin. And if Chris Denorfia is starting in center on opening day, we all know why.
UPDATE: Maybin has now tried to make nice, tweeting “Man just got back on the wagon panda express was great today, now I’m ready for action…. Best oriental cuisine around… Let’s go…!”
