Melky for Cameron trade on hold

According to, the Melky Cabrera for Mike Cameron trade is at a "stalemate" and did talks did not continue today, as previously reported. Kei Igawa may not be involved in the trade anymore, and Bill Hall may come along with Cameron to the Yankees.

As you can tell, I wish they would save the money that Cameron would get paid and pursue Teixeira. Cameron and Hall are both very good friends of CC Sabathia, so acquiring either could ease Sabathia's transition to the Big Apple. I think Hall could be our version of Chone Figgins, he has spent time in his career at short, third, and in center. I think he's played some second as well.

For what its worth, Hall is due close to $25 million over the next three years, and Cameron $10 million next year.
