Hey this is Brandon from Pinstripe Alley. I was wondering if you guys think Cameron is overpaid at all considering the other options out there.
I know Cameron has always been a great fielder and really will help the team out and if that's what the Red Sox were looking for that's great then. If they were looking for the best hitting option out there, they really did overpay.
Cameron: .250/.342/.452 24/70 2 years $16M
Damon: .288/.355/.439 24/82 1 year $6-7 M
Dye: .251/.340/.453 27/81 probable contract: Somewhere around Damon
Out of those options I'd probably choose Cameron first, but not with the probable contracts I would choose Damon. I know it would be very unlikely for the Red Sox to sign Damon, but still shouldn't they have waited it out a little longer and gotten a bigger bargain?
