Mets fans remember Mike Cameron as the 3 time Gold Glove Winner who impressed us with his talent and speed in right field and positive presence in the clubhouse from 2004-2005 with the team.
A lot of us can recall that horrible collision Cameron and Beltran had in late 2005 when both players dove for a ball; neither player backing off of the play, resulting in a concussion and multiple face injuries for Cameron. Soon after the collision Cameron was traded to San Diego and fans wished him well. Now Cameron is with the Boston Red Sox and there is speculation that Cameron could be traded.
He missed most of the 2009 season with a groin injury and was limited to 48 games last season due to abdominal injuries. This year, Cameron is about as healthy as he can be in spring training and drawing interest from other teams. In addition to Cameron's offense of 8 20-homer seasons in his 16 year career he is a major asset on defense.
The Boston Globe has speculated that Cameron could eventually be traded because of the current depth in the outfield between Jacoby Ellsbury. J.D Drew and newbie Carl Crawford.
With all the interest surrounding Mike Cameron and Beltran's ongoing knee troubles maybe the Mets should consider bringing back Cameron for another season....
