Anyone who hoped to have Mike Cameron in camp as an insurance policy can finally give up the ghost. Gardner and Cabrera fans rejoice.
“Our center fielder is here in camp,” Cashman said when asked if he had anything going for the Brewers’ $10 million center fielder, who was close to being a Yankee last December.
This according to the NY Post. The news is hardly a big surprise to anyone, but there have been recent rumblings of a resurrection of the deal. The fact that Melky and Brett have been two of the best Yankees in camp makes Cash’s decision to nix the original deal look pretty good so far, but it’s very early yet. I’d guess that those two will get every chance possible to prove they can hold down the job before Cashman looks at that deal again. Does this make you guys happy, or do you think we need a proven guy in that spot?
