    In 2009, Cameron wrote a piece critical of the Twins for extending Kubel. The money quote: "In what world is Kubel better than Eric Hinske?" Kubel put up a .907 OPS that year, and Cameron got a lot of (deserved) grief over it.

    I laughed when the Mariners signed Robbie Cano, the subject of perhaps the most famous of Cameron's preposterous statements.
    Hopefully, Cameron will have more crow to chew on quite soon....remember this ditty from a year ago?

    Yep. I respect a lot of what Cameron says but when he's wrong, he'll just keep doubling down on stupid until it's hard to take anything he says seriously anymore.

    Unfortunate, because he's a pretty smart guy and could be a great writer if he could let go of the hubris.

  3. These 2 users like Brock Beauchamp's post and want to buy him/her a steak dinner:

    I think that he should keep writing on things he knows about, like the Mariners, and quit talking about teams that he never watches play (unless they play the Mariners,) like the Twins. That's the biggest problem with him and lot of others who are trying to become "national" overnight...

    "I don’t think anyone expects guys like Colabello and Kubel to keep hitting."

    I was was going to say that this was good locker room bulletin board material.

    Maybe the most interesting stat would be Cameron's swing (and miss) rate...?
    Feel free to pile on about Suzuki.
