Cameron trade may not get done

According to Ken Rosenthal, the rumored Mike Cameron trade may not get done.

The Yankees will need to have a change of heart for it to happen, one source familiar with the discussion said.

The Brewers are asking for a second player in addition to Melky Cabrera. The Yankees want the Brewers to pay a portion of Cameron's $10 million salary.

Milwaukee is not inclined to fulfill that request at a time when the Yankees are on the verge of paying over $200 million for pitchers CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett.
If this trade doesn't happen, it's not the end of the world. It may even be a good thing.

While I'd love to ship Cabrera out of town, they don't have to force things. The Yankees still have Brett Gardner, after all.

Yeah, like I said, it wouldn't be the end of the world. I can understand why the Brewers wouldn't want to give the Yankees any money after they took Sabathia away from them for $161 million.
