Jason Bay Era in Boston Officially Over, Red Sox sign Mike Cameron

Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe is reporting the Red Sox and Mike Cameron have agreed to a two year deal worth 15.5 million dollars.

 Cameron, 36, batted .250/.342/.452 with 24 home runs and 32 doubles in 628 plate appearances this past season for the Brewers. He's getting old but remains one of the game's top defensive outfielders and could either man left field or center for the Red Sox in 2010.

This move pretty much wraps up the Red Sox offseason moves, with Marco Scutaro, John Lackey, and Cameron. If the Mike Lowell trade goes through, then they may look to add an Adrian Beltre or another defensive minded corner infielder. 

Cameron was also being courted by the Cubs, who will now look to Marlon Byrd or discuss the possibility of Milton Bradley coming back to the Cubs in 2010.
