Cameron Suspended

Former Mets centerfielder Mike Cameron has been suspended for 25 games at the start of next season. Cameron tested positive for a banned stimulant for a second time resulting in the suspension under Major League rules. Cameron, of course, denied he purposely took anything illegal. After all of the analysis and testing, I can only […]

A Year Later, The Mets Bag Delgado

It’s been a while since I wrote but yesterday’s trade was so big it merits some discussion. When the Mets traded Mike Cameron to the Padres last week for Xavier Nady it was accepted mainly for the cost cutting aspects of it. Nady is not nearly as accomplished as Cameron and the Mets used the […]

Beltran and Cameron Worse Than Originally Thought

Newsday is reporting that the injuries to Carlos Beltran and Mike Cameron are worse than originally diagnosed. Cameron will need surgery on the broken bones in his face and Beltran has a displaced facial fracture that will most likely not need surgery but will have some more tests done today. Cameron is probably gone for […]

Tough Day

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. As I predicted yesterday, Tom Glavine pitched well enough to win (7 IP, 9 H, 2 ER). Unfortunately fate had other plans. In the bottom of the 7th inning Carlos Beltran and Mike Cameron dived at the same ball in right center and collided with each […]

Welcome to the Second Half

Good morning, class, and welcome back from your mid term break. With the All-Star break behind them the Mets try to improve on their .500 record tonight, starting the second half with a 4 game set against the Atlanta Braves. Though a .500 record at the break is an improvement on last season it’s not […]

Minaya a Buyer – Reason for Optimism?

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. The day after I mentioned my (not so) secret formula for winning – score first, protect the lead, win the game – the Mets tried to follow it in beating the Nationals 5-3. Though they scored early on a Mike Cameron homer in the 1st they […]

Lineup Change

The Mets lost 2 out of 3 to the Marlins over the weekend but then came back to beat the Nationals 5-2 yesterday… Alot has been made of Willie Randolph’s reshuffled lineup yesterday. The lineup saw Jose Reyes batting seventh for the first time in his major league career, Carlos Beltran batting second, Cliff Floyd […]

Cameron/Sheffield Trade Dead

It seems the Mike Cameron for Gary Sheffield deal is dead. I guess it’s all for the best. Did you hear Sheffield’s tirade about being traded yesterday? I don’t blame him for feeling that way but if that’s the way he responds to a rumor then I’d hate to see how he reacts to an […]

Mets and Yanks to Make a Deal?

Joel Sherman reports in today’s New York Post that the Mets and Yankees are discussing a blockbuster deal the centerpiece of which is Mike Cameron for Gary Sheffield. I’m like the idea of this trade depending on what spare parts are built into it. Cameron would get a chance to play his natural and preffered […]

Dayn Perry Says Cameron Should NOT Be Traded’s Dayn Perry has an article on who should and should not be traded as we approach the non-waiver trade deadline. Our own Mike Cameron made the list of those who shouldn’t be traded.
