Supposedly, the Yanks and Brewers have agreed on a deal based around Melky Cabrera and Kei Igawa with the Brewers willing to take on some of Cameron's salary. However, now they`re backing away. Mainly because they read RAB's post on the subject and think it makes more sense to wait on it. Or they want the Brewres to pay more of his contract. The Brewers haven't heard anything from New York over the weekend and are wondering if they still have any interest. Its up to the Yankees now.
I don't understand why they`re not jumping on this. Factoring in Igawa's contract they`re getting Cameron for 6 million dollars for one year. Then if they`re paying even one or two million dollars then they`re getting Cameron for 4-5 million dollars for one year for Igawa and Cabrera. It probably means they can't afford a big hitter like Ramiez or Texiera. Hoever, Cameron is a bigger upgrade over Gardner then Ramirez or Texiera would be over Matsui or Swisher.
