Yankees Waiting On Brewers?

The Yankees are reportedly interested in Brewers outfielder Mike Cameron, who is currently waiting to see whether or not the Brewers pick up his 10 million dollar option. According to the NY Post citing industry sources, the Yankees are waiting to see if the Brewers pick up his option because they think he is an upgrade over Johnny Damon and Melky Cabrera. Damon had a solid for the Yankees, and is a lefty, so it is possible they would trade him and pursue a better option, or platoon between Gardner and Cabrera. The Cubs and Mariners are possible destinations for Damon.

The Yankees are reportedly targeting Mark Teixeira, CC Sabathia, and Derek Lowe, so adding Mike Cameron will only increase their payroll. 

This story was approved by MLB Rumors.

Yankees are going to make a stupid move if they get Cameron.

althogh they are looking at cameron, damon is going no where and melky is not in the equation as of right now. maybe cano and him get their stuff together, realize they are major leaguers for the new york yankees and instead of them out in hoboken until the wee hours bringing women home 9 at a time before a day game...maybe then melky will be in the mix
