NY Post is reporting that the Yanks have interest in Mike Cameron if the Brewers don't keep him. In this story by Jsonline.com, the comments made by readers are actually pretty good. One guy brings up a good point....
Are the Yanks simply playing mind games with the Crew in an attempt to get CC. If the Brewers exercise their option with Mike Cameron, they would lose 10MM that could be used in a CC package. If that's the case....cut your ties with Cameron. Let him go to a team of ego-tistical fruit cakes. The ownership would never stand for his strike outs.
Don't get me wrong, Cameron was a great addition to the team. Besides his high strike out ratio...he did play some good D out in center (aside from the Philly's series). He also hit 20+ homeruns....after missing the first month of the regular season. He's a vet, and the last time I checked the team needs that.
But...if we truly have a shot at CC, the by all means...part ways with him. I know we don't have the deep pockets to compete with the Yanks.
- CC wins another top award, voted for by fans.
- Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun ranked #1 and #5 in a new book being published on MLB's top-young players in the league. I would have thought Prince would be lower than Braun because of his physical shape (i'm one to talk, i know). Baseball analyst Bill James' book has an extensive list under "Young Talent". Evan Longoria (my favorite) is #17. Nonetheless, two Brewer infielders in the top 5.... Flippin' sweet.
