Brewers sign Cameron

I don't know how I feel about this:


Free-agent center fielder Mike Cameron has reached preliminary agreement with the Brewers on a one-year contract with a club option for 2009, according to major-league sources.

The deal is pending a physical.

...

The addition of Cameron likely will result in the Brewers moving Bill Hall to third base and Ryan Braun to left field.

[UPDATE: I'll link to it in the comments, but the financials look surprisingly reasonable: about $5.5 million for 2008, and a club option for $10 million in 2009, with a $750,000 buyout. It also looks like we'll go with Gwoss (Grynn?) in center during the suspension. --- roguejim]

I've never been a fan of Cameron.  He'll forever be linked as the main guy the Reds traded to get Griffey, Jr. from the Mariners.  If anything else, this will quit the "No way Braun can play 3B" complainers ... but I'm not certain it's the right move.
