Red Sox - Signed Cameron
Boston Red Sox - Signed CF Mike Cameron to a 2-year, $15.5 million contract.
This gives the Red Sox one of the best defensive outfields around. Ellsbury should be a dynamite leftfielder defensively instead of a so-so centerfielder. I’d still be open to a trade if a team wants to pay for Ellsbury as if he’s a star centerfielder, but he’s not going to hurt the team badly in left.
Cameron’s been a ridiculously consistent player for the last decade, never having a poor year, but also never having a real ridiculous superstar season, and while it might be tempting to call this a no-risk signing based on that, Cameron does turn 37 in a month and consistency isn’t terribly predictive. The resources devote to Cameron aren’t extreme and if the signing doesn’t work out, the Red Sox still have the money to bring in a leftfielder next offseason and move Ellsbury back to center.
