Re: Reds In on Cameron
He starting the 2008 season with a 25 day suspension for using an illegal stimulant.
Hopefully, that means his value is decreasing, and he can be signed on the cheap.
But that also means that he is unavailable to the Reds for the first month. I am thinking that if the Reds sign him, it is as a fourth outfielder and defensive replacement. He is not replacing anyone (Hamilton), or getting in anyone's way (Bruce).
Considering he is 35 and starting the season under suspension, I doubt anyone is offering a full time starting job, or a lot of money.
I do think that his numbers have been suppressed by playing in pitchers parks the last 7 years. I think he could put up nice #'s in GAPB.
