"Mets balking at potential three-team trade"
The Mets are balking at a proposed three-way trade in which they would send OF Mike Cameron to the Astros and receive OF Eric Byrnes from the A's, with Astros 2B Chris Burke heading to Oakland.

Byrnes plays all three outfield positions, but the Mets are not convinced he would be adequate in right. The Astros are willing to trade Burke if they acquire a center fielder, knowing they could return Craig Biggio to second base.

I think that makes sense for the Mets. Cameron doesnt want to play right, and they'd be getting an OF who is pretty good. I don't know how is arm is, but I wouldnt doubt he could play right.
