    Reds In on Cameron

    According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Mike Cameron's agent tonight said he has a new suitor. Krasovic makes an educated guess that the Reds are that team. He cites Cameron's desire to play for Dusty Baker, the possible defensive improvement, and the availability of Josh Hamilton as factors. It would be odd for the Reds to spend their remaining money on a position player though.

    Cameron enjoyed his time in Cincinnati in 1999, hitting .256/.357/.469 as a 26 year-old before being included in the Griffey trade. Wouldn't it be interesting if the Reds brought back Cameron and Brett Tomko? And Antonio Perez is probably kicking around somewhere too.
    Please no.

    There HAS to be a reason for our interest in OF's. I am guessing Hamilton and Freel are as good as gone...

    I think the rumors are just false and made up honestly.

    I put this in the same category of Tomko Lieber and Wells.

    People just guessing and hoping it sticks for a few extra reads.

    People are underestimating the power of Dusty Baker. He's going to try and get all the players he likes (Willis, Cameron) with no recognition of the star prospects that would be blocked if we get them (Cueto, Bruce)

    Just wait til the Hamilton-for-Willis trade goes down and we have to take Jacque Jones too.
    FIRE DUSTY Never mind. The man is clearly a genius.

    As far as Willis and Cueto. Believe me, Willis would not block Cueto. This team is questionable in 3 starting spots so there is enough room for any pitcher that proves himself. I imagine Cueto will start out in louisville for awhile at least.

    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.

    What makes you so confident of this? The fact that Dusty Baker is now our manager:?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Not confident at all. I guess I should have said "I'm hoping" instead.
