Red Sox Sign Cameron

The Red Sox concluded a busy day tonight by coming to terms with former Brewers outfielder Mike Cameron on a two-year deal. Cameron will probably play left in 2010, with Jeremy Hermida getting time in both left and right.

Cameron is a tremendous outfielder who hit 24 home runs and batted .250 for Milwaukee in 2009. This move signals the end of Jason Bay's time in Boston, and it looks like they will not pursue Matt Holliday either.

This offseason has signaled to me the Red Sox are putting a premium on upgrading their defense. But I bet Theo Epstein is not finished yet, either. Adrian Beltre is still out there to be had, and of course, there is always the looming presence of Adrian Gonzalez.

right now love the pitching staff (even if we do trade Buchholz) - don't forget how good Dice K looked at the end of season either

Oh yes, Rick. Someone just became expendable on the pitching staff, and it's not too hard to guess who it is...
