Mets and Padres Finalize Trade. Mets Get Xavier Nady and Padres get Mike Cameron

Mike Cameron passed his physical and now he'll be roaming PETCO's center field. The big part of this deal is that the Padres took responsibility for all of Cameron's salary next year ($7 million). The Mets get Xavier Nady, who I think for now can be penciled in as the Met's starting first basemen. If we nab Carlos Delgado, I can say him moving over to right field to take over for Cameron.

Not a bad deal. It free's up some money and if it works out, we have an actual upgrade as a hitter. Cameron had declined in the field the last couple of years and while he could go yard, he's a career .249 hitter.
