John Lackey and Mike Cameron to the Red Sox

In news that surprised me, the Red Sox signed John Lackey and Mike Cameron yesterday.  I didn’t even know that Lackey was even on the Sox radar and with his signing, it effectively ended Jason Bay’s chance of returning to the Sox.  So we will now get to enjoy a Mike Cameron/Jeremy Hermida platoon in left field next year.  I am really excited about the pitching staff – Lester, Beckett, Lackey, Dice-K, and Buchholz is a great rotation, probably the best in baseball.  I still have concerns about the offense though.  I don’t have the stats but just using the eye-ball test, I felt the Red Sox big issue last year (and in 2008 too) was the inability to hit good pitching.  If that is still the biggest problem with this team, these moves have done nothing to fix that.  My hope is that there is another shoe to drop and the Sox will go out and make a deal for an impact bat at 1st or 3rd.
