The Yankees and Brewers are intending soon to resume talks involving centerfielders Mike Cameron and Melky Cabrera. However, the Yankees still see Cameron's $10-million salary as high and will continue to insist that Milwaukee either pick up a few million dollars or take Kei Igawa and some of his bloated contract off their hands.

Igawa has $12 million and three years to go on his deal. The Yankees would expect to pay the bulk of it, but are asking Milwaukee to pay some of it.

The Brewers have been balking at offsetting any of Cameron's salary by sending money to New York after the Yankees outbid them by $61 million for pitching superstar CC Sabathia.

There's been an unusually high connection between the Brewers and Yankees this winter. Longtime Brewers pitcher Ben Sheets has drawn interest from the Yankees and could receive an offer if Yankees veteran Andy Pettitte rejects the teams' longstanding $10-million offer to him. The Yankees appear to be looking at Sheets and Derek Lowe, another star free agent, as targets should Pettitte never agree to their proposal.
