GM: Cameron to Yankees Is "Dead"

Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin said the Mike Cameron deal to the Yankees is dead. They couldn't come to an agreement on how much money was going to be going between the teams. Melvin intended to use the money that was freed up to go after pitching, but said the market has started to dry up, which suggests the Brewers might be done making moves.

The Brewers need a veteran in their rotation to support oft-injured pitcher Yovani Gallardo. Manny Parra showed signs of being a great pitcher, but fell apart in the second half of the season going 2-6, after going 8-2 coming into July. Parra lost some movement on his pitches in the second half, which caused him to leave them over the plate. It is possible he could emerge as their top starter next season, but the Brewers would be smart to go after someone like Randy Wolf, Andy Pettitte, Oliver Perez, or former Brewer Ben Sheets to anchor the rotation and take some pressure off their young pitchers.
