A National League general manager's take on the Mets' signing of Mike Cameron:
"Defense was a pretty significant issue for them last year. Roger Cedeno didn't pan out like they'd hoped (in right field), and it became very evident that they needed an upgrade in the outfield. When you see guys like Torii Hunter and Cameron on those highlight reels, they're great, great athletes. "Cameron's talented, but there are some inconsistencies (with him). I think he's a good start to solving some of their problems. When you look at his past, he's a great athlete with power when he makes contact. He's an exciting guy and all that. But part of the downside is, he strikes out a lot. I don't think that's going to change. It's pretty much a done deal at his age.''
