One guy I've always admired is Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron. Make that former Red Sox outfielder Mike Cameron.
From his days with the White Sox and Mariners and beyond, I've always marvelled at Cameron's defensive prowess. Although not the greatest hitter, he had some pop in his bat as evidenced by 272 career homers.
The Bostons designated Cameron for assignment today, meaning they have 10 days to trade him or release him. Can't blame the Sox for dumping him. He was mired in a 3-39 slump and was hitting just .149 with 3 homers and 9 RBI's.
At 38, he probably isn't an everyday player anymore but I have to believe there is some team that could use him.
No matter what happens, Cameron had a very solid big league career and provided a bunch of highlights in the outfield.
