It's simply naive to think that he'll improve anything except, perhaps, wins by making a switch to the AL East.
As already mentioned, he'll be in a better hitter's park against better lineups, and he'll have to face the DH. Camden's not bad to pitch in early in the season, but as the weather heats up, the ball seems to fly out.
Add in the fact that he's still has the giant ? hanging over him with an injury concern, and I think he's a good sell high candidate.
That being said, I haven't dealt him in any of my leagues yet simply because I'm not getting back the value that I want for him. His lack of W's makes his rank low in Yahoo! leagues, which makes him near-impossible to deal in pubs. In my money leagues, I think people are hesitant for the same reasons that I want to deal him.
The moral of this story: sell high... but don't undersell the guy!

How many times during the second half will he face them? 4 or 5 times probably 1/5 of his starts. So I will start him against everyone else where he will post good numbers and get alot of wins. I don't start anyone but absolute studs against those two teams or Cardnals, so for me this trade is good for my fantasy team. Thats why I have a 6 man rotation of Peavy, Vazquez, Mussina, Bedard, Myers, and Burnett.
