    Nationals Cameron finds work

    According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Nationals have reached a deal with outfielder Mike Cameron.
    Cameron was said to be engaging in "serious talks" with the Indians over the weekend, but the Nationals apparently swooped in with a better offer. Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports that it's a minor league deal. Cameron, 38, batted .203/.285/.359 with nine home runs and 27 RBI over 269 plate appearances this past year between Boston and Miami. He'll likely function as a backup outfielder if he makes the Opening Day roster.
    It's amazing he finds work after the season he had yet Jermaine Dye couldn't find work after hitting 27 HRs with a .793 OPS.

    Probably because Dye refused to sign any reasonable offer. It's not like there wasn't interest.

    The reputation for a good glove, even if that reputation is based on past glory can do wonders.

    If Juan Castro hadn't retired last year at age 39 voluntarily, I would still be having nightmares of Ned Colletti bringing Castro's "good" glove back for a fifth stint with the Dodgers.

    Wait, who am I kidding? He'll be back the moment Mark Ellis heads back to the DL with a hamstring injury.

    Guess you don't remember the 2nd half he had in '09 where his OPS wasn't even .600.... and that was TWO WHOLE YEARS AGO.

    I remember it clearly but I have seen worst players get contracts in the past two years.
