Hold up there... Cameron deal dead?

Danny Knobler at CBSSports.com seems to think so:

A Cameron for Melky Cabrera fell apart when the Yankees asked Milwaukee to pick up some of Cameron's $10 million 2009 salary, according to two sources familiar with the talks. The Brewers and Yankees could continue trade discussions next week, but about other players, not Cameron.

Those talks are on hold as both teams travel home, and also while the Yankees wait for an answer from A.J. Burnett.

 

And since rumors will fly this time of year, he also had this to say:

Who else could [The Yankees and Brewers] talk about besides Cameron, who would fill the Yankees' need in center field? Two baseball executives speculated that the Yankees could have interest in Prince Fielder. The Yankees have reentered the Mark Teixeira free-agent talks, and assuming they don't get Teixeira, perhaps they would be open to adding Fielder.

The Brewers, who have to shed a salary or two to help them sign a free-agent starting pitcher, were dead against paying any of Cameron's money as part of a deal to get Cabrera. The Brewers want to chase a lower-level free-agent starter to replace Sabathia and Ben Sheets, who they will also lose to free agency.

The stove is getting hotter at last.
