According to a Buster Olney story on ESPN Insider

The Mets and the Padres are on the verge of a deal that would send Mike Cameron to San Diego, a baseball official told ESPN's Buster Olney on Wednesday.

 

Other parts of the prospective deal are not known at this time, but the Mets are looking for middle relief help and the Padres are reportedly willing to discuss reliever Akinori Otsuka, who would be a natural fit in New York.

 

The Padres nearly signed Cameron as a free agent after the 2003 season and still have a need for someone to patrol center field at Petco Park

Paving the way for the Mets to make a run at any number of the free agent outfielders, yet probably taking themselves out of the Manny Ramirez sweepstakes since it seemed Cameron was a big part of that trade for Boston.

 

It also makes it hard for Manny to even be in trade talks when the Red Sox have no GM, and are on like no. 59 on their candidates list.

This is the same thing we went through when Bob Watson left - only it took us an extra couple of seasons to fall from grace. The team will still be good - they just wont have those one or two pieces in place that win you the WS...

 

The other problem is that the Yanks and Bosox are BOTH shopping for CF in a shallow market. This does not bode well for either team...
