First, of all, in case you somehow didn’t catch this last week.
So it seems the Brewers and Yankees will be making a trade. Mike Cameron will be headed to the Yankees, and Melky Cabrera will be coming to Milwaukee. That much seems clear right now, but there may be other pieces involved. Personally, I’d feel pretty sick if all the Brewers got for Mike Cameron was Cabrera. Cameron is better offensively and defensively, and I don’t see how the Brewers can trade him without getting any pitching back. But I will not pass any judgment until the deal is finalized.
One thing that would really make things interesting is the Yankees’ apparent interest in Bill Hall. Hall may actually have close to negative value at this point with his contract, so if the Brewers are able to shed Hall and Cameron’s contracts it would at least free up a lot of salary.
