Yanks close on Cameron

The Yanks are looking to fill the void in centerfield with Mike Cameron and it seems like they`re getting close to a deal centered around Melky Cabrera and Cameron. However, the Brewers want another player (a pitcher) and the Yankees want salary relief.

Believe it or not, Kei Igawa may satisfy the demands of both teams. He would balance off the salary difference and in the NL Central he may be able to find a niche. The Brewers have also supposedly inquired about him. Bill Hall could also be part of this deal as a utility infielder but I`d try to avoid that if I`m the Yankees.

If I`m the Yankees and I can acquire Mike Cameron for a year for a package centered around Melky Cabrera then I`d have to make that trade.
