Cameron, Floyd now join All-Stars

SHARE Cameron, Floyd now join All-Stars

Cliff Floyd and Mike Cameron joined the All-Star party Sunday, adding even more spice to a game with a distinctly Seattle flavor.

Floyd, the Florida Marlins outfielder who has been sniping with NL manager Bobby Valentine, replaced New York Mets pitcher Rick Reed, who has a sore neck and back.

Cameron replaced Tampa Bay's Greg Vaughn, giving the host Mariners eight players for Tuesday night's game, the most since Pittsburgh placed eight players on the NL team in 1960.

"Floyd was No. 31 the entire time," Valentine said. "I need No. 31. He's on the team. I'll go with the guy who was on the edge the entire time, and now he's on the team. I hope he's happy."
