Padres - Acquired Cameron
San Diego Padres - Acquired OF Mike Cameron from the New York Mets for OF Xavier Nady.
This is a good trade by design for the Mets - Cameron was an expendable asset, due to make $7 million (the Padres are taking on all of it) playing at a position they have depth at and suffering a pretty ugly face injury towards the end of last season. They get younger and cheaper here, but the main problem that keeps this from being a bonafide winner is that Nady doesn’t really fill a need for the Mets. They can slot him in at right instead of Victor Diaz but it won’t be an improvement or they can platoon him at first with Mike Jacobs, which isn’t really the best use of assets.
It’s harder to like this trade from the perspective of the Padres. The Padres already have to replace the offense that Brian Giles brought the team, but instead, they’re getting more expensive in an odd quest to get enough pieces to trade for David Wells. If this was their plan, they would have been far better off using Nady in right in 2006 and going after Burnett or Millwood or see what Vazquez is fetching.
