Padres OF Complains About Panda Express; Too Bad Team Owner Runs The Chain

On Tuesday, Cameron Maybin, the speedy outfielder traded from the Marlins to the Padres this offseason, tweeted this (@CamMaybin; it's since been scrubbed):

Never eat panda express shits had me feeling awful for 2 days back on my grind tomorrow,, We got action...


And Cameron Maybin is, like, an eight-tool player. So it takes some seriously bad Kung Pao to take him off his grind. Though his grind is a .692 OPS in parts of four seasons.

Unfortunately for Maybin, Tom Davin, the CEO of Panda Express, owns a minority stake in the Padres. It's worth noting, though, that Davin was an executive at Taco Bell before taking the Panda Express job. And McDonald's founders Joan and Ray Kroc used to own the Padres. Plenty of sacred not-quite-cows to go around.

Cameron Maybin warns against eating Panda Express. Padres Owner and Panda CEO Tom Davin would probably disagree. [Gaslamp Ball]
