Cabrera/Cameron Deal Dead?

I was driving home from work today, listening to XM's 24-7 MLB channel like usual. One of the in-between segment news updates (kind of like a news update every 20 minutes) had to do with the recently discussed Brewers/Yankees Melky Cabrera for Mike Cameron deal. They way they made it sound was that according to Brewers' GM Doug Melvin, the deal was pretty much dead. Per the news report, the 2 sides haven't spoken since the winter meetings. I surfed around the web to see if I could find any reports about it and surprisingly there were none that I came across. (update @8pm - Kat O'Brien now has it mentioned on her blog)

If it is in fact dead, I won't lose any sleep over it, even though Cameron would be a slight upgrade over Melky Cabrera in my opinion. This is kind of a deal that one could live with or without. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if this deal gets put back on the table at some point.

I could really care less.

Peace, love and Pinstripes,

I don't really care either. But if the deal doesn't happen, I wasted an entire blog post bidding farewell to Melky!

haha, oh well... i'd rather not have Mike Cameron on my baseball team...

Alot of my friends are Mets fans, they tell me they didn't like having Cameron, and he strikes out like it's nothing.
