[insert your own punchline here. Or use the #MikeCameronIsSoOld hastag. We'll stick with the one about Mike Cameron and Ted Lerner attending grade school together.]
There's Mike Cameron in the video above, dumping beer on a fan's head after the Brewers clinched the Wild Card in 2008. Certainly, Nats fans felt like drinking on Monday afternoon when news of Mike Rizzo's latest offseason coup hit the wires: a minor league deal for old Mike Cameron. Pop the bubbly.
You have to hand it to Rizzo, his Hot Stove is buring white-hot at the moment. Non-tendering Doug Slaten. Trading Balester for Perry. Signing Andres Blanco, Jason Michaels, Jarrett Hoffpauir, and Waldis Joaquin to minor league deals? And now Cameron? Busy.
Oh, and don't forget supposedly wining and dining Prince Fielder Sunday night at Cafe Milano in Georgetown? Busy, busy...Rizzo may yet have the last laugh...
