Cameron back on the West Coast, new Japanese posting
Mike Cameron’s been traded to the Padres for Xavier Nady. He’ll attempt to prove his defensive value is still high in the huge outfield of Petco Park. This means Cameron will be back catching fly balls in Safeco May 19, 20, and 21st when the Padres are in town. Wooooo!
Also, Deanna emailed to say
The random Japanese baseball scoop of the day is that Yusaku Iriki is
being posted, for god knows what reason, by the Nippon Ham Fighters.
He’s like Masao Kida, only even more mediocre. 33 years old, spent most of
2003 and 2004 either on farm teams or out injured with hamstring problems.
I’ll be astounded if anyone actually bids for him, but he has stated that he
would “regret not attempting to go to MLB”.
