  1. So you’re saying that the one true ring is really just a bottle of greenies?

  2. I’m a Brewers fan, and I’m moving to Boston this summer, so damn, do I love me some Mike Cameron.

    That’s all I have to say.

  3. One wOBA to rule them all? (In Cameron’s case)

  4. Sean Smith gives him 46 career WAR. Not bad for a guy who has never been widely viewed as a star.

  5. Amazing a bigger deal hasn’t been made out of the Sox collecting Mitchell Report players…

  6. It’s weird that he’s been essentially the same player for so many years. If he loses that power, though, his offense will be putrid because he was never a good hitter. I think it’s amazing that he’s been such a good center fielder for so many years, usually defense is the first thing to go. He never was, and never will be, a big time difference maker, but I think every team can use a player like him in their outfield.

  7. He’s kind of like a Hank Aaron player in terms of that; not that he’s anywhere near Aaron’s level, but in the sense of being a guy who consistently puts up good numbers for a long time, rather than having crazy good seasons then declining.

  8. As long as we’re doing all the childish remarks in one thread.
    “no on would put him on Wangers level.” hahaha

  9. I’ll note that the reason he failed to play 140 games in 2008 was also not injury-related; 162 minus 25 equals 137.

  10. Hey, four win players don’t grow on trees!

    Unless that’s how the Rays and Rockies do it…

  11. The real problem is Cameron’s reliance on a substance as hackneyed as ‘Unobtainium”

  12. Does anyone think he deserves HoF consideration? I know he’s not there, but should he sniff it?

    Comment by Joseph — April 7, 2010 @ 5:57 pm

  13. I love me some Mike Cameron, but he’d have to play until he was 45 to sniff the HoF.

    That said, he’s a charter member of the Hall of Really Good, along with Ray Lankford.

  14. On of my favorite players. Letting Cameron walk ranks up there with dumb M’s FO moves along with Jones et al for Bedard, Cabrera+Choo for Perez+Broussard (two different deals), and the Sliva contract.

  15. One thing Jack Zduriencik has said about Cameron (and he’s a huge fan of his) is that every team he has joined has improved when he got there and every team he has left has regressed when he left. That’s a lot of teams by now and while he was clearly not the only factor, it’s hard to deny that he was not a negligible factor. Turning your centerfield into a “no hits zone” is a good thing.

  16. Mike Cameron appears to be a Highly Gifted Hitter.

  17. Hey fellas, is it relevant that Cameron’s abdominal cavity is imploding on a cosmic level? How does that correlate to Boston’s late demise? You’ll have to forgive me, I went to Music School.

  18. LibertyBoy, your link spam is getting tedious. If you want to promote your site, at least do it with comments that aren’t content-free.
