The Nationals are interested in Mike Cameron

Mike Cameron

When last we heard about Mike Cameron he was being released by the Marlins after having a verbal confrontation with a flight attendant. Based on that — and based on the fact that he hit .203/.285/.359 last year, I figured we had seen the last of him.

Guess not: the Nationals are looking at him as a bench bat.

Last year’s face plant notwithstanding, you figure Cameron could still work as a bench bat and backup outfielder. He can still play defense. There has to still be a bit of pop in that bat. As long as you’re not paying him real money, why not go for a guy who has always provided those things and … clubhouse presence.

Yes, I hate myself for even thinking that. But that’s what happens on December 14 of a long offseason.

    If Mike Cameron gets a 7th chance over Dmitri Young as a bench bat and clubhouse presence, well, there is no justice in Washington Baseball.

    Heck of an underrated career, that guy had.
